Outdoors: Fire potential very high in New Mexico

-A A +A

State parks and national forests aren’t allowing campfires

Serious fire danger in and around New Mexico continues to put a damper on outdoor activities this Father’s Day.
Santa Fe National Forest, which surrounds Los Alamos County, is still under Stage II fire restrictions. Stage II restrictions, which went into effect June 10, puts prohibitions on using campfires or stove fires, fireworks and smoking in the forest, as well as prohibiting the use of all-terrain vehicles, motorcycles and other types of vehicles. In May, the forest went to Stage I restrictions.
Valles Caldera National Preserve is also under Stage II restrictions. Bandelier National Monument hasn’t announced any specific fire restrictions.
Santa Fe, Lincoln National Forest and Gila National Forest are all under severe restrictions due to drought conditions in New Mexico.
Due to extreme conditions, Lincoln National Forest, covering the south-central part of the state, is currently closed to all activity. Gila National Forest, in southwest New Mexico, is also under Stage II restrictions and the Quail Ridge Fire that burned in early March in the area destroyed 13 homes and 60 other structures.
