Wild Fire Threatens Los Alamos

Los Alamos National Lab is closed today due to a wild fire nearby. According to the lab's website:

"All laboratory facilities will be closed for all activities and nonessential employees are directed to remain off site," the statement said. "Employees are considered nonessential and should not report to work unless specifically directed by their line managers."

As I recall, this is not the first time the lab has been threatened by a fire. Several years ago, wild fire may even have crossed onto the lab's grounds.
