LOS ALAMOS, N.M (KRQE) - While the rain Saturday was a welcome sight for many, fire officials are also warning of flash flood potential, especially in the state's burn areas.
However they are also hoping the monsoonal storms help put out the flames.
Fire crews working the Las Conchas Fire, near Los Alamos, are hoping the summer rain will no longer make the burnout of containment lines necessary in many parts of the fire.
The Las Conchas fire is now 142,000 acres in size, and is 40 percent contained.
More than 2,000 firefighters are still battling that blaze.
Almost two weeks after it began, the Las Conchas fire is now the most active fire in New Mexico.
