A new fire is burning in the Sandia Mountains.

According to John Helmick with the Sandia Ranger District, the fire is small and located north of Sandia Tram--near the area of last year's Chimney Canyon Fire.

Helmick reports the fire is difficult to see and the smoke is intermittent. Fire crews will not be sent at this time due to weather danger.
