Firefighters in Sandoval County were battling a brush fire Sunday south of Cochiti Lake that covered at least 6 acres, U.S. Forest Service officials said.
Smoke from the fire could be seen as far north as Santa Fe.
It wasn't clear what caused the blaze or if anyone was evacuated because of the flames.
The region was dry and windy Sunday with temperatures in the 60s, and the National Weather Service issued a red flag warning through Sunday evening.
The winter was one of the driest in recent memory, as drought conditions have heightened wildfire risks throughout New Mexico.
Sunday's brush fire was at least the second in the area this year. Crews put out a small brush fire near Interstate 25 on March 7.
