    DENVER (AP) — The FBI is confirming that two men and a woman wanted for crimes in Florida and Georgia have been captured.

  • Las Conchas wildfire creates significant road hazards

    The Las Conchas fire has created significant safety hazards for anyone entering the burned area, including threats from flash flooding, landslides, road washouts, falling trees, and rolling rocks.

    At this time, officials indicate that safety hazards along some routes are so extreme that access will not be possible in the immediate future.
