More people in northern New Mexico are being warned they might have to

flee as a wildfire heads toward mountain resort towns. Fire officials

said at a briefing Wednesday night that the fastest moving flames were

heading farther northeast, away from the area's biggest population

center in Taos. But evacuations continued to expand southeast of there

and officials warned another windy day was forecast Thursday before

weather conditions are expected to improve.
