Local law enforcement officials recognized the physical and emotional toll the lengthy evacuations take on people.

While evacuations are still to be ordered for the town, most residents are crowded and ready for duty, with local school districts canceling classes.

San Miguel County Sheriff Chris Lopez said firefighting vehicles, a fleet of planes and other equipment have been brought into the area to try to contain the flames, and “we’re ready for anything that does come.”

The Eremits Peak fire was started on purpose to eradicate the dry vegetation and reduce the chance of major uncontrolled fires, but then it had been blown out of control by gusty winds.

More than 3.500 firefighters and relief workers are deployed nationwide to fight the fires.

Firefighters are working to widen the road running between the fire and Los Alamos while clearing undergrowth and blasting the area with fire protection products.
