Los Alamos Fire Department has temporarily pulled crews off the Quemazon fire starts due to storms in the area. Crews will resume operations once the weather clears. The helicopters dropping water on the small fires also suspended activity because of the storms and will resume operations once the storm moves away from Los Alamos.

Now that storms have passed, LAFD is reporting that crews are back at work on the Quemazon fire, along with a helicopter doing water drops on the fire using water from Los Alamos Reservoir. Access continues to be restricted to Quemazon and Pipeline Trails. Individuals are asked not to travel to Los Alamos Reservoir, which is an active part of fire operations at this time.
