Two wildfires have burned roughly 1,000 acres each in the Mount Taylor Ranger District, New Mexico State Forestry officials confirmed Thursday night. One fire, the Diener Canyon Fire, initially began as a prescribed burn in the Zuni Mountains on Monday in Cibola County. However, it broke out of its containment zone. It's burning about 15 miles west of Grants and Milan and has no containment. The second fire, dubbed the Bluewater Fire, has prompted pre-evacuation notices for people in Bluewater Acres and Bluewater Village. That fire also has no containment as of Thursday night.
