The rosy-finch flocks have departed.FIRE RESTRICTIONS LIFTED ON THE CIBOLA NATIONAL FOREST EXCEPT FOR KIOWA AND RITA BLANCA NATIONAL GRASSLANDS STILL UNDER RESTRICTIONS


ALBUQUERQUE, July 10, 2008 - Cibola National Forest officials will end Fire Restrictions for the Sandia, Mountainair, Magdalena and Mt. Taylor Ranger Districts effective Friday, July 11th at 8 a.m. Fire danger has decreased due to moisture and higher humidity over much of the Forest. Although restrictions are lifted, visitors are reminded to be careful with their campfires and/or the use of chainsaws.

Forest Supervisor Nancy Rose announced: “The restrictions effectively minimized fire occurrence, which could have resulted in high losses. I would like to commend all our firefighters for maintaining their state of readiness and efficiency during initial attack efforts on all fires. The community has been exceptional in supporting the restrictions and closures. We would like to thank everyone for their patience.”

The public is reminded that campfire safety is still of concern year round, they need to follow fire safety precautions when recreating in the forest. If you have a campfire, please abide by the following rules:
