Los Alamos fire chief Doug Tucker assured a crowd of about 600 people that their homes would be safe from the destruction caused by the Las Conchas Fire.
Tucker and a host of Los Alamos County officials, along with Gov. Susana Martinez, were on hand at a public briefing held Wednesday afternoon at White Rock Baptist Church.
Tucker said the fire crews battling the Las Conchas blaze near Los Alamos were performing very well. He minced no words about whether the fire would reach homes in Los Alamos.
“We are there, we are here in White Rock,” Tucker said. “I promise you we will not lose a structure in Los Alamos County.”
