Forest fire?

There seems to be a pretty good-sized fire burning south and a little west of Los Alamos (again!).  Smoke’s obscuring Los Alamos from view, down here in Santa Fe.  Started off brown and small, now the grey cloud obliterates the Jemez, and you can smell smoke when standing outdoors.  Nothing in the local news yet.

Later: The winds calmed enough so I could take a photo [in the Flickr stream, above right] with some contrast.

Even later: Yvonne thinks it could be a prescribed burn.  Read the comments to this post.

[5:47PM: It must be a prescribed burn. Even with high winds starting for the evening, the smoke is diminishing. Recall that Cerro Grande started as a prescribed burn, you’ll understand my concern.]

Day later: Prescribed burn, confirmed, that will continue for a few days.  Amazing how hard it was to get information about this.
