Lincoln National Forest changes fire restrictions

July 11th, 2013 at 12:24 pm by under Wildfires

The recent rains in southern New Mexico have been a welcome change.

It has helped out with the fire danger somewhat.

The Lincoln National Forest will be scaling back fire restrictions to Stage 1.

It goes into effect starting Friday at 8 a.m.

The areas affected will be the Smokey Bear Ranger District, the Sacramento Ranger District and the Guadalupe Ranger District.

That means you can’t build fires or grill except in designated sites.
