Bonney Lake, a small, wooded lake in northern New Mexico, may be a hotspot for wildfires.
And the fire is starting.
The lake is located in the Mojave Desert.
In the past, it’s seen in the summer as one of the driest places in the United States.
Now it’s on fire.
It’s now reported that there are reports of several fires burning out of control in the lake.
One of the fires was reported as a tree.
The second was reported a fire that burned a lot of brush.
It took fire crews about six hours to get it under control.
It was the second fire to burn the lake this week.
The first fire was reported last week.
Bonney Lakes fire area in the northern Mojave desert.
The blaze that burned Bonney was reported Wednesday morning by the Arizona Department of Forestry.
Officials are still unsure what caused the fire.
The fire is burning in the Bonney Reservoir.
A dam on the lake is in danger of collapse and is being guarded by a team of firefighters, the Associated Press reports.
It also appears that the lake may already be on the verge of erupting.
It is not yet clear what type of fire could start on the reservoir, and it’s not clear whether the dam can be repaired.
Officials warn the reservoir could be flooded if there’s another major fire, as happened in 2013.
