Imagine driving on the freeway and seeing nearly two dozen flaming paper lanterns flying over traffic, at the same time firefighters are busy putting out two fires in the Bosque. That's exactly what one Albuquerque family said they came across Tuesday, and they followed the lanterns to make sure they didn't start another fire. Alicia Fajardo and her mother don't know where they came from or who sent them up. "All of a sudden we see all these bright little lights that were just kind of floating," Fajardo said. The family was driving on the interstate coming up on the Big-I. "I tried to pull out my phone but we were driving on the freeway so it was kind of fast," Fajardo said. "So we really couldn't capture it but we had to go investigate."
