Las Cruces, N.M. – Recent moisture and increased humidity has reduced the fire danger and allowed the Bureau of Land Management to lift fire restrictions on public land in southern New Mexico, starting at 8 a.m. on July 12.
The fire restrictions are terminated within the BLM Las Cruces District in Grant, Sierra, Hidalgo, Luna, Doña Ana and Otero counties. The restrictions had been in effect since June 7, 2018.
"We appreciate the cooperation of everyone in preventing unwanted wildfires," said BLM District Manager William Childress.
Fire restrictions remain in place in southeast, north and central New Mexico, on BLM-managed lands in the Roswell Field Office, Albuquerque District and Farmington District. To view details on these restrictions go to firerestrictions.us.
