About 20,000 acres of Bailey County are charred, after a massive wildfire on Monday.

According to the National Weather Service, the fire also destroyed a barn, and two firefighters were treated for smoke inhalation.

Thick smoke forced authorities to shut down part of U.S. 84, between Sudan and Muleshoe.

At least ten fire departments, including Portales, New Mexico helped extinguish the blaze.
