Little Bear Fire

I have a bunch of stuff I have to post, but this goes completely to the top of my must do list.  We are in Ruidoso for the week, and drove in from the north today.  While we were north of Carizozo we noticed some smoke, and by the time we were about 80 miles away it had grown to a real fire.  By the time we were just outside of town, the sun was red.  It is almost eleven now and you can see the glow over the edge of the mountain from our front door.  Luckily the fire is going in the opposite direction, and they are dropping chemicals to slow it down.  The fire is getting bigger and now people have been losing homes and having to stay in shelters.
