Fire Restrictions Begin March 8, 2014
Due to increasing fire danger throughout the state, New Mexico State Parks will implement restrictions on open fires, charcoal, and smoking on March 8, 2014, within the following state parks: Bottomless Lakes, Brantley Lake, Clayton Lake, Conchas Lake, Oasis and Sumner Lake.
“The region has not had any substantial precipitation lately,” said Director Tommy Mutz. “Low moisture levels have significantly dried out vegetation within the effected parks, making the restrictions necessary for the safety of our visitors.”
OPEN FIRES, CHARCOAL AND SMOKING ARE PROHIBITED UNLESS THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS ARE MET:
Campfires and charcoal are prohibited.
Smoking is prohibited.
Fireworks are prohibited at all times.
