Thursday Reopening For Part Of Lincoln National Forest

Alamogordo – Two districts in the Lincoln National Forest are set to reopen Thursday.

A forest supervisor tells the Alamogordo Daily News that recent rain and higher humidity has lowered the fire danger allowing the Forest Service to reopen the Smokey Bear and Sacramento ranger districts. Fire restrictions remain in place.

The Guadalupe Ranger District near Carlsbad remains closed until the area receives sufficient rain and the fire danger eases.
