SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Firefighters responded to dangerously dry and windy conditions Friday as they labored to stem the spread wildfires in the Southwest. At least 166 homes have been destroyed in one rural county in northeast New Mexico since the biggest fire burning in the U.S. started racing through small towns northeast of Santa Fe last week. New emergency evacuations were ordered Friday in the drought-stricken region as heavy winds fanned wildfire flames. Fire behavior experts say the conditions are a recipe for disaster where timber is drier than kiln-dried wood.
