Fire danger increased in Lincoln National Forest

LINCOLN NATIONAL FORES, N.M. (KRQE) – The combination of dry, warm and windy weather has prompted the Lincoln National Forest in southern New Mexico to increase its fire danger rating.

Forest officials say the Smokey bear; Sacramento and Guadalupe Ranger Districts are experiencing extreme conditions.

The forest has yet to impose any fire restrictions, but officials are asking visitors not to park vehicles on dry grass and make sure campfires are out.

Spark arrestors are required on chain saws and off-road vehicles and all fireworks are prohibited.
