BLM Albuquerque District lifts fire restrictions

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Effective, June 25, 8 a.m., the Bureau of Land Management will terminate all fire restrictions on BLM administered public lands within Bernalillo, Catron, Cibola, McKinley, Sandoval, Socorro, Torrance and Valencia counties.

Following recent precipitation that has reduced fire danger in New Mexico, the BLM joins other federal agencies in lifting fire restrictions. While monsoonal moisture has largely reduced fire danger, it is important to always be aware of the conditions of the area you are visiting, go prepared to put your campfire out completely, and have a fire extinguisher on hand in case of a vehicle fire that could spread to wildlands. Please continue to park only in areas free of flammable vegetation. 

The use of exploding targets and fireworks is prohibited year-round on all BLM lands in New Mexico by statewide order. All BLM New Mexico prevention orders can be found at the BLM NM Fire Restrictions site

The BLM appreciates the public’s cooperation in helping to minimize the number of human-caused wildfires. For more information, please contact the BLM Albuquerque District Office at (505) 761- 8700. Additional fire restrictions information can be found at

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land located primarily in 12 western states, including Alaska, on behalf of the American people. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. Our mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.
