Taos firefighters put out a brush fire on Thursday (May 28) at a residence near La Hacienda de los Martinez, a historic Spanish dwelling located along Lower Ranchitos Road in Taos.

The fire was reported on Pacheco Lane midafternoon Thursday (May 28), according to Fire Chief Eddie Joe Abeyta, who said the initial call described "big flames that were getting into the trees near the residence."

Firefighters from his department responded with a brush fire truck and a tanker truck to fight the blaze, which appeared to have started as a small grass fire that got out of control, he said.

It was at least the second brush fire that local firefighters responded to Thursday.
