ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque firefighters working overnight have contained a fire in the Bosque near Tingley Beach.

The Albuquerque Fire Department says about 30 firefighters were still working Sunday to stamp out hot spots.

The blaze, which was less than 5 acres, broke out just before 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

Callers who reported it initially described it as a campfire.

At one point, 50 firefighters were tackling the fire.

Neither Tingley Beach nor the BioPark were affected.

Albuquerque fire spokeswoman Melissa Romero says the cause of the fire is under investigation.
