Vehicles burn in Tesuque Casino parking lot

May 17, 2019

Four vehicles burned Wednesday afternoon in the parking lot of the Tesuque Casino just off U.S. 84/285 north of the Santa Fe Opera House, a Santa Fe County spokeswoman confirmed.

Just after 5 p.m., firefighters from the volunteer fire department in Tesuque and from the county fire station in Pojoaque responded to the incident, which is under investigation, county spokeswoman Carmelina Hart said.

There were no injuries and the fires were extinguished “fairly quickly,” said Hart, who did not have information on the extent of the damage.

The cause is being investigated by the state fire marshal, she said.

A casino representative was not available for comment Thursday.
