Las Conchas Fire near Los Alamos growing; see it live

The Pajarito Mountain web cam has the best view I've seen today of the fire southwest of Los Alamos. Check it out here.

Meanwhile, LANL will be closed Monday, officials said. All non-essential employees should stay home, according to the lab's web site. At this hour, there is a voluntary evacuation in order for Los Alamos. Gov. Susana Martinez said she is sending the National Guard to the area to assist.

For fire updates, this website is pretty helpful. Inciweb is also usually useful, but there is nothing up right now about this fire.

At the same time, the Pacheco Fire near Santa Fe gained ground today, due to high winds.
