ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The man who started a series of fires in the Bosque will be a free man soon.

Audie Helms appeared before a judge in court Wednesday. He’s set to be released on the June 16 on pre-trial services as long as he adheres to an alcohol treatment program.

Helms was arrested in April after police caught him setting a fire near Bridge in the south valley.

He is suspected of setting as many as seven, but so far he’s only charged with two. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
