A fire that began on Thursday in a remote area of Bandelier National Park is still smoldering, despite the wet weather in the area Monday.
“It has gotten some rain on it,” said Marla Rodgers, the park’s assistant fire management officer. “However, it still has some smoke on it. With the warming and drying trend over the next few days, we expect we’ll be seeing smoke for awhile.”
As soon as the fire was reported by a hiker who saw smoke coming from the next canyon over, the park service flew out to size it up.
