LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (AP) — Randy Foster tossed an armload of clothes in his truck, grabbed his dog and fled as the town around him was about to bum. He left behind his new motorcycle as hot ash began singeing the back of his neck.
“It was time to go,” he said of his hasty departure Wednesday.
On Saturday, the Los Alamos police officer returned once again to what remained of his neighborhood. Walking through his yard in blue jeans soiled with ash and soot, he found the artifacts of a life lost: charred metal, blackened rubble and the skeleton of his bike, most of it melted away in an inferno that has turned 36,000 acres of northern New Mexico into a scorched no man’s land.
Most frustrating was what Foster could no longer identify.
He turned over a hunk of fused metal in his hands, blackened by picking through the debris that was once his living room.
“I have no idea what this is,” he said. Then, after a pause, it came to him. “Oh, wait a minute, that’s my VCR.”
More than a week after the National Park Service started the blaze to remove dry brush and grass, the fire that had destroyed 260 homes and threatened the Los Alamos National
Laboratory remained dangerous.
The blaze in the nearby canyons and valleys was still only 5 percent contained. It spread in all directions Saturday, reaching Indian land. Officials were concerned that the fire might reach sacred tribal sites in the Santa Clara Canyon.
Winds picked up later Saturday, and a dry, cold front was expected Monday, bringing higher winds.
“With the fire burning in so many different directions, it will be a long time before we get
this fire contained,” said Jim Paxon, a U.S. Forest Service spokesman. “This fire will burn for weeks. This thing is growing and we don’t know where it’s going to end up.” Most of the 25,000 people
evacuated will not be allowed to return to their homes for at least a week, although the National Guard will begin escorting families whose homes were destroyed into Los Alamos on Sunday.
