Fire misses New Mexico camp


ALTO, N.M. —

The recent Little Bear Fire scorched 44,000 acres and destroyed 254 structures, but it narrowly missed Mountain View Christian Camp, sponsored by the Sunset Church of Christ in Carlsbad, N.M.

The church — whose previous camp, known as Skyridge, burned during massive fires in 2000 — rushed to help the Little Bear Fire victims.

Mountain View camp was transformed into a relief center, offering lodging as well as meals, food and cleaning supplies to fire victims. Volunteers worked up to 15 hours a day.
