More than 300 acres are burning 10 miles north of Jemez Springs.

The cause of the fire is due to a tree falling on a power line, State Forestry officials say.

Officials say homes in the area have been evacuated, and one home in the Thompson Ridge community has been damaged. 

The fire started on private land and has burned onto federal Forest Service property and into the Valles Caldera.

Sandoval County firefighters and state forestry fire crews are on scene.
