A unique sight in the bosque this weekend: Albuquerque firefighters had to battle a fire on an island in the Rio Grande.

Their trucks weren’t able to get them to the scene, so they were brought via airboat. The big concern was the embers spreading to the bosque, but the fire was put out quickly. 

It’s unclear how the fire started.
