Fast moving Dog Head fire grows to over 5,000 acres, consumes structures
Dog Head fire broke out in the Manzano Mountains Tuesday afternoon and has since consumed more than 5,000 acres, with zero containment, prompting State of Emergency declaration and mass evacuations.
At least 200 homes have been evacuated, as Gov. Martinez declared a state of emergency, and placed the National Guard on standby.
The Dog Head Wildfire is affecting portions of Bernalillo and Torrance Counties, Martinez said in her Proclamation.
