Crews Investigating Cause of Wildfire at Guadalupe Mountains National Park

Crews at the Guadalupe Mountains National Park are looking into the cause of wildfire.

A release from the park says the fire started Tuesday night in a remote wilderness area of the park.

Several agencies went to help with the fire that was visible for miles.

By Wednesday, most of the fire had burned itself out.

Because the area is rugged and there have been poor flying conditions, there is still no information on what sparked it.

Investigators believe it could have been caused by an aircraft hitting the mountain.

All trails in the Pine Springs area of the park along with the Pine Springs campground are closed.
