ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Mother Nature is helping crews get a much better handle on the Las Conchas fire burning near Los Alamos.
Heavy rain fell Monday and it helped crews dealing with the fire which is now more than 147,000 acres and 50 percent contained.
However the danger of flash floods, that are common after large intense fires scorch the canyons, is a concern.
Teams which include hydrologists, biologists and engineers are working on flood prevention plans.
The governor signed an emergency order Friday to pay for flood preparations around the state.
