More fire restrictions to take effect

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Fire restrictions will take effect across the Cibola National Forest next week as dry conditions persist.

The restrictions will start Monday morning in the Sandia, Mountainair, Mt. Taylor and Magdalena ranger districts.

That means no campfires expect within developed recreation sites, and smoking will be limited to enclosed vehicles, buildings and developed recreation sites.

Nearly every corner of the state is dealing with some level of drought.

Conditions are classified as severe in more than three quarters of New Mexico. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
