Fire Crew Works Through Night to Contain Forest Fire in Albuquerque

A fire that broke out on May 25 in Albuquerque’s bosque cottonwood forest raged through the night, spreading to roughly 30 acres before being contained the morning after.

Video shared by the Rio Rancho Fire and Rescue department shows members of their “wildland and dozer teams” work on mitigating the fire’s spread, as flame and smoke surrounds them. The fire department noted in its caption that their team “worked through the night to create containment lines.”

By the following morning, local media reported that the fire was contained, and that “no structures were lost in the fire.” Credit: Rio Rancho Fire and Rescue via Storyful
