Firefighters put out blaze near Pacheco Canyon

Aug. 28—A fire broke out Friday near Pacheco Canyon north of Santa Fe, burning less than 1 acre before firefighters put it out Saturday.

The blaze was caused by a lightning strike, said Julie Anne Overton, a spokeswoman for Santa Fe National Forest.

The fire was south of Forest Road 102, not far from the Medio Fire, which burned more than 4,000 acres from the Rio Nambe to Pacheco Canyon last year.
