Extreme fire danger in Albuquerque

There’s a drought. Fires rage around the state. That means if Burque starts blazing, outside agencies can’t come to our rescue.

BREAKING: Bosque Fire

Marisa Demarco

The Bosque is on fire near Bridge and 8th Street. The sky in the Downtown area is yellow as smoke plumes drift through the afternoon sky. The wind is making it hard to contain the fire.

UPDATE: Shortly after I posted this blog, I rode my bike into Barelas just north of the fire. The smoke was thick, visible in the neighborhood, and residents stood along the sidewalk with their shirts pulled up over their noses. The National Hispanic Cultural Center was evacuated earlier in the day, along with some businesses in the area and homes south of the NHCC. The fire encompassed about 40 acres, according to this KOB report that was updated at about 5:30 p.m.

Education Building in the Bosque Loses Funding

Eric Williams

The session officially ended minutes ago, but because a budget fix hadn't been found for the state's $500 million shortfall, legislators will be seeing each other again soon.

But they did pass a measure this morning that takes money from projects around the state to try and shore up some reserves. They pulled in $130 million that way. I was just reading through this long list of projects that are losing their funds. And I found the Legislature is sucking back cash flow that was set to "plan, design, construct and equip an education building at the Rio Grande Nature Center state park in Bernalillo county."

Remember that story? A few weeks ago I wrote about some neighbors that were pretty bummed about that 5,700-square-foot building going into the Bosque.

Browse that list yourself. So many things are getting the ax.
