The neighbor was mistaken, the Dog Head Forest Fire is not contained. As of this morning it had grown from less than 10 acres to 682 acres. The wind shifted and the smoke is over my property now.
About 50 homes have been evacuated, but not in my immediate area. The wind shift is bad, because it can run the fire straight up the Manzano Mountains and to the Sandias.
Bad and wrong.
The ground firefighters had to back down due to heat, but they have been dropping retardant from the air. Not much is on the news but we do have a hot line. The head firefighter said they could use some rain to help get it under control. Not a vote of confidence. I hope this Dog Head Forest Fire gets contained and does not rip straight up these mountain chains.
