ISLETA PUEBLO, N.M. (AP) - Firefighters have contained a fire on Isleta Pueblo that has burned nearly 80 acres.

KOAT-TV reports the West Lagoon fire broke out around midnight Saturday and damaged about 76 acres near Highway 314.

Authorities say nobody was injured.

They are warning drivers in the area of Belen and Los Lunas to proceed with caution because the air may be very smoky.

This is the second fire to break out in Isleta Pueblo in less than a week.



A fire in the same area occurred Sunday.
