New Mexico brush fire prompts evacuations

A brush fire in Corrales, New Mexico, forced a few hundred people to evacuate their homes late Sunday night, police said.

No damage or injuries were immediately reported. Someone first called police around 7:15 p.m. local time (9:15 p.m. ET) to report smoke in the area.

"It got pretty big pretty fast," said police Detective Brandy McConnell.

The evacuation took place in the southeast section of the village, adjacent to Albuquerque, New Mexico. McConnell added that conditions in the area have been dry and windy in recent days.

Authorities said they should be able to bring the fire under control if the weather holds. The plan is to keep crews working on the blaze all night, depending on the wind, a fire official said.
