A wildfire that broke out in the Chuska Mountains has now spread to more than 11,000 acres, and two native communities of America have been advised to prepare themselves for evacuation. On Monday, almost 700 firefighters were engaged in overcoming the wildfire that seemed threatening for two towns of Navajo Nation, Naschitti and Sheep Springs, located around 200 miles northwest of Albuquerque.
According to Southwestern Incident Management Team 3 and Public Information Officer, Arlene Perea, the fire has now spread to around 2,000 acres in the Asaayi Lake Fire.
Today, the efforts of the firefighters were focused on the areas surrounding buildings and structures.
As the fire advanced in the Naschitti Chapter, it became a bit manageable because of lighter fuel types. The fire has been driven by strong winds, and it is predicted that the conditions will remain the same, for at least another day.
