Lincoln National Forest Lifts Fire Restrictions Friday

ALAMOGORDO, NM – An increase in area-wide rainfall during the past week has moderated the fire danger for the entire Lincoln National Forest. Travis Moseley, Forest Supervisor for the Lincoln National Forest announced today that fire restrictions will be lifted effective Friday, July 19th at 8:00 am.

Moseley reminds forest visitors that, “the change in weather brings cooler temperatures and increased water flow in streams and drainages. Be and aware of your surroundings, and be prepared for sudden changes in weather.”

If you do build a campfire, be sure that it’s completely extinguished before leaving your campsite!
