Fire in Lea County

A fire broke out in Lea County along Highway 508 Monday. 
The fire is estimated to be between 8,000 and 10,000 acres in size and has moved into Roosevelt County
Though it is actively burning, the burn has slowed because of cooler evening temperatures and lighter winds.  It is burning in the open prairie, and no structures are threatened at this time.
Today is expected to be windy. In the area of the Lea County fire, winds will reach at least 20 mph by the afternoon. 
Again, with winds slowing down during the overnight hours, the blaze isn't expected to grow very much.
