CIMARRON — A wildfire in northern New Mexico that forced about 100 Boy Scouts to relocate to another camping area has grown to more than 1,000 acres.
State Forestry officials say the Whites Peak Fire grew Saturday to 1,166 acres — more than 1.7 square miles — and is 10 percent contained.
The lightning-caused fire began Thursday morning in a remote forested area of private land about 14 miles southwest of Cimarron and 3 miles south of Philmont’s border.
