Fire crews are trying to contain a small fire south of Gallup.

The Sawmill Canyon fire is burning about 10 miles southwest of Quemado.

The fire was sparked by lightning Wednesday.

The fire has burned about 40 acres and none of it is contained.

Even so, forest officials have more than one hundred firefighters on the scene working to get it under control.
