BLM Las Cruces District lifts fire restrictions 7/1/22 

Effective July 1, 2022, at 8 a.m., the Bureau of Land Management will terminate all fire restrictions enacted by Fire Prevention Order #NMLC00000-22-01 on BLM administered public lands within Doña Ana, Otero, Luna, Sierra, Grant and Hidalgo 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. 

“We appreciate the cooperation of everyone in preventing unwanted wildfires within the district,” said BLM District Manager William Childress, “and with the upcoming national Independence Day celebrations around the corner, we want to remind everyone about the policy of fireworks on public lands.” 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 Las Cruces District Office at 575-525-4300 or the BLM NM Fire Restrictions site.  Additional fire restrictions information can be found at
