Beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, the Santa Fe National Forest, Valles Caldera National Preserve, and NM State Game & Fish properties will enter Stage 2 Fire Restrictions due to the potential for extreme fire danger.
The restrictions apply to all National Forest System lands within the Santa Fe National Forest and Valles Caldera National Preserve.
“Prolonged high temperatures, low humidity, and current fire activity have really increased the potential for extreme fire danger on the Forest,” said Bruce Hill, Santa Fe National Forest Public Affairs Officer. “We’ve also unfortunately seen a high number of abandoned camp fires already this year even while in Stage 1 Fire Restrictions. We need to take added precautions under these conditions to reduce risk to the public, and cultural and natural resources by going into Stage 2.”
Los Alamos County Fire Marshal Brian Nickerson said in an email Thursday that LAFD was anticipating the move.
So what does that mean?
