Firefighters keep up search for hot spots

(Continued)

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —

As firefighters worked to boost containment, officials at the tribe’s emergency management department were fielding questions about how they have been handling donations. Some community members took to social media and accused the tribe of not distributing food, water and other supplies that have flooded in over the last week.

The emergency management department said Sunday that it has requested that donations of items stop. The department said it has been overwhelmed and needs time to sort through the bounty to determine what might be perishable so those items can be distributed first.

The department said the tribe has set up a relief account at Wells Fargo Bank that will go toward helping those affected by the fire.
