Don’t smoke in the Bosque like a jerk
The National Weather Service is alerting our city to critical fire danger along the Bosque and in the East Mountains. That’s the status starting today, and it will remain through the weekend.
It seems like every summer, some idiot sets off fireworks in the Bosque and burns down a good stretch of it. Fire restrictions include: No fireworks, no smoking and no open flames (campfires, barbecue, welding).
The same goes for the East Mountains, though people are allowed to smoke in their vehicles if they put their cigs out in approved containers.
