That is so stupid! Some people are so careless. Had this happened yesterday that fire would have been harder to control. More homes would have been at risk and likely burned in the process. Fortunately the wind was blowing away from my location. I hate to think of what could have happened. Thank God for the rapid response to the fire.

Gee. We just rated being on KRQE morning news about this fire. Nothing like being on Albuquerque news for stupidity. Kudos to the various fire departments and first responders.

The ash dumping idiot will probably get off Scott-free because they are somebodies cousin.
