Any time there's a visible plume of billowing smoke coming from the Bosque, it's cause for concern. Especially in a severe drought. Especially for those like Scott Schaffer, who lives right next door like. "I was driving back across the bridge, saw a plume of smoke and called 911," Schaffer said. Firefighters from Albuquerque and Bernalillo County, quickly jumped into action, knocking down the small fire in less than an hour. According to a county fire spokesman, the cause was a malfunctioning lawnmower operated by county open space. It was not what Gary and Anne Frale were expecting, on their morning stroll. "Very surprising. I thought somebody flipped a cigarette or something," Gary Frale said.
