Open flames banned in unincorporated Sandoval County, Jemez and Sandia ranger districts

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The dry, hot temperatures prompted officials to ban open flames in the unincorporated areas of Sandoval County and the Jemez and Sandia ranger districts. That means fires, campfires and grills are allowed only in developed campsites with existing fire pits. Smoking is only allowed inside buildings or vehicles.
