Some New Mexico wildfire evacuees worry about their future


MORA, N.M. (AP) — As more than 2,700 firefighters in northern New Mexico continue to battle the nation’s largest active wildfire, many evacuees are worried about their future. Hundreds have been away from their homes for more than a month now due to the biggest fire in the state’s recorded history, and some say their financial resources are dwindling. Officials at Glorieta Adventure Camps said there have been 67 coronavirus cases among evacuees, including some that required hospitalization. Meanwhile, the six-week-old wildfire remained 40% contained around its perimeter Sunday.
