-A A +A



Employees at Los Alamos Monitor arrived to work Friday morning to a burned dumpster and a bit of a mystery.

Apparently, someone had made a small fire in the parking lot overnight, and when they were done with it, they picked up the remains and disposed of them in the dumpster next to the Monitor offices, located at 256 DP Road.

According police officers on the scene investigating, the debris from the original fire set off a blaze in the dumpster, where it burned all night, melted the lid to the receptacle and was destroyed.

The Los Alamos Monitor  is asking the public if they may have seen any suspicious activity Thursday night or early Friday morning to call the Los Alamos Police Department at 662-8222 and ask for Cpl. Ryan Wolking.

The Los Alamos Fire Department from Station 6 later checked the contents of the dumpster to make sure there were no hot embers.
