PECOS, N.M. (KRQE) - Just as fire crews gain some control of the massive Tres Lagunas Fire, another concern pops up.
Crews say weather played a big role Sunday in helping control the spread of flames. But now they are worried about possible storms Sunday night.
Fire crews say Sunday has actually been one of the best days to fight fires with lower temperatures, some humidity and virtual no wind.
The fire is now nearly 7,500 acres and crews say many parts around the edges have good containment lines.
Virtually no smoke could be spotted from Pecos Sunday.
Helicopters were working as well, dropping retardant and water.
Still no structures have burned or even damaged in this fire.
Crews say they have built good containment lines at Cow Creek, Vivevash Ranchand on private land north by Davis Creek.
The biggest concern area now is Holy Ghost Canyon, in the northwest corner where there are more than a dozen summer homes.
Crews worried about the fire moving down the canyon on to homes.
"It's very steep heavy fuels, there's not a safe way to get fire people on the ground there, so as I said we've got the hose lay and sprinkler systems below the canyon," John Pierson said. "We're watching this, we're in hopes that this continues to just slowly back down."
None of the evacuation orders have been lifted so far and Highway 63 remains closed at the Dalton Day use area.
Crews say the weather Sunday night could go either way, with rain possibly helping things drastically or possible thunderstorms could spark new flames or spread the fire even more.
