Apparently, Los Alamos’ fire season just thought it might get in a couple more licks before closing down for good.
According to the Los Alamos Fire Department, two fires cropped up on July 2 near the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
The fires weren’t close enough to cause immediate concern however and were tamped down pretty quickly. They both occurred about two miles away from any buildings owned by the lab.
“We had a lightning strike at the bottom of Water Canyon, crews got on it right away, and it was put out that evening,” LAFD Deputy Chief Justin Grider said.
The other fire occurred later in Rendija Canyon and was under control within two hours.
