Fire Crews Battle Neighborhood Blaze in Hatch

A fire that spread to multiple structures is responsible for considerable damage in a Hatch neighborhood.

The Hatch Fire Department got some help from crews with Doña Ana and NMSU fire squads yesterday to do battle to try to keep the flames from spreading to more structures. Hatch Fire Chief Willie Herrera says so far investigators believe the fire started in a home but it quickly spread to three houses, two trucks and some campers. Some people inside a house were able to get out in time and there are no reports of injuries.
