Firefighters say they plan to vigilantly monitor a massive wildfire in central New Mexico amid continuing of hot and dry weather conditions. Fire officials said Sunday that light winds could contribute to heightened activity within the blaze that erupted last week in the Manzano Mountains south of Albuquerque. Higher humidity overnight allowed crews to strengthen lines around the fire and mop up. But firefighters are now keeping watch for any potential hot spots where flames could jump across the line.
