MOGOLLON, NM - The Whitewater-Baldy complex fire has charred more than 100,000 acres in the Gila National Forest.
Lighter winds are expected for the next few days; helicopters are expected to play a big role in attacking this blaze, which is zero percent contained.
Dry conditions will continue, and steep rugged terrain is making it difficult for the ground crews to gain control.
Cities across New Mexico are under a health alert because of smoke from the fire.
