New Mexico Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Secretary-designate David Martin and State Forester Tony Delfin has announced restrictions on fireworks, smoking, campfire and open-fires.

The restrictions will begin at 8 a.m. Wednesday. The restrictions will be imposed on all non-municipal, non-federal and non-tribal land and will remain in effect until further notice.

“High fire danger exists across much of New Mexico and new fire starts are becoming difficult to control,” Delfin said. “I’m urging all state residents affected to follow the restriction guidelines to protect lives and property in their communities.”
