Firefighters are responding to a fire in the Rio Grande bosque Wednesday afternoon near Montaño and Coors.
Tom Ruiz, an Albuquerque Fire Rescue spokesman, said the blaze is burning on both sides of the river, south of the bridge, and at least five acres.
He said an Albuquerque police officer initially called in the fire around 5:45 p.m. after seeing smoke on the west side of the river. Ruiz said the wind-driven fire quickly grew and jumped to the east side.
Ruiz said Bernalillo County firefighters had contained the smaller fire on the east side and AFR has stopped the forward momentum on the larger blaze on the west side.
He said no structures were threatened and no injuries have been reported. Ruiz did not give a cause of the fire or any other details.
