    Crews from the Santa Fe National Forest are responding to a wildfire in Pacheco Canyon north and east of Santa Fe near Tesuque. The fire is reported to be about 10,000 acres at this time and burning actively.

    Smoke is visible from Los Alamos, Santa Fe, U.S. Highway 285 and I-25 north of Santa Fe. 

    Los Alamos County fire officials said they have been made aware of the wildfire, located in a remote section of the forest and that no response by local firefighters is anticipated at this time.

    The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
