A lighting-caused fire in the Santa Fe National Forest’s Coyote Ranger District grew to over 1,000 acres as of Monday afternoon.

The Diego Fire was first detected on June 25. Donna Nemeth, public information officer for the Santa Fe National Forest, said the fire covered an area of about 100 acres before a 30-acre spot fire sprung up Sunday morning. The latter burned its way into the main fire, expanding the conflagration.
