New Mexico's wildfires are being fueled by strong winds

Crews battling a big wildfire that developed dramatically over the weekend faced a hard battle on Sunday in northern New Mexico due to high winds.

By Sunday, the Hermits Peak/Calf Canyon fire east of Santa Fe, which started as two separate fires before merging a week ago

had burnt over 104,000 acres, or more than 160 square miles, up from around 75,000 acres on Friday

Smoke from one fire and another — the Cerro Pelado fire in Jemez Springs, some 40 miles west of Santa Fe

had permeated most of the northern section of the state, according to fire officials.

The Hermits Peak/Calf Canyon fire has been brought under control by over 1,000 firefighters.
