An early start to the United States' wildfire season continued Wednesday in the West, with blazes in New Mexico turning deadly and prompting a state of emergency.

Firefighters in New Mexico were battling two huge wildfires that started on Monday in the same location. According to officials, the fires had expanded to more than 23,400 acres by Wednesday morning, killing two people, burning over 1,400 homes and other structures, and forcing more than 8,000 people to evacuate.

The fire killed two people in South Fork Fire- one unidentified individual incinerated in their vehicle, and the other was a 60-year-old man who died from multiple burns.

New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham announced a state of emergency for the area on Tuesday, and her administration confirmed that two people died in the fire. The circumstances surrounding the death were not disclosed.

The South Fork Fire and the Salt Fire are burning parallel to each other on Mescalero Tribal land and U.S. Forest Service land near the mountain community of Ruidoso, some 75 miles west of Roswell, were 0% contained on Wednesday, according to fire officials.

Residents of Ruidoso, a community with a population of around 7,800, were instructed to evacuate.
