Extreme fire danger in Albuquerque
There’s a drought. Fires rage around the state. That means if Burque starts blazing, outside agencies can’t come to our rescue.
Today, Mayor Richard Berry and Fire Chief James Breen upped restrictions in all municipal Open Space areas, effective at midnight. That includes the Bosque, arroyos and retention dams, among other things. The full list is available here.
Restrictions in a nutshell:
• No campfires
• No fireworks
• No vehicles off designated roadways
• No chain saws or other tools operated by internal combustion engines
• No combustion engines, internal or external, period
• No equipment that sparks
• No torches, welding or otherwise
• No camping overnight
