I just got news of the fire burning near Los Alamos, NM (My home-town) After speaking with my brother and sister over the phone, this is what I know: the fire, which broke out yesterday evening, is burning in the Bandalier area and on LANL property. About 30 structures have been destroyed, and the greatest threat is to the lab. From my sister's report it's more of a threat to White Rock than it is to Los Alamos. There was a voluntary evacuation yesterday evening due to the smoke, and at about 2 PM today the evacuation became mandatory for all of Los Alamos and White Rock. If I have any mis-information, please let me know. I'd appreciate any further details from anyone better informed. Thanks.
