The Tecolote fire was 10 percent contained as of Tuesday morning, officials said.
The blaze, which started Friday night, has burned 700 acres. But the fire hasn’t struck any buildings, and no evacuations have been ordered.
“No structures are immediately threatened. We’ve had people talk to homeowners,” said Denise Ottaviano, a U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman.
The fire is on Bear Mountain, about 2.5 miles south of Gallinas Canyon. The blaze is raging on rugged terrain in the Santa Fe National Forest.
