Every year there are wildfires in New Mexico. Two years ago this month I was evacuated due to a wildfire. I was displaced from my home for over a week.
Right now there's a wildfire at Thompson Ridge. It was started by a downed power line. What I don't understand is that the fire two years ago was caused by the same thing. You'd think the power company would be responsible for maintaining a clear path under the lines so this would be prevented. I just don't get it.
The fire is known as the Thompson Ridge fire - the Ridge where it started. Some people have been evacuated from their homes since last Saturday (and possibly last Friday).
