ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — No fire restrictions remain in effect in the Cibola National Forest and National Grasslands as fire danger has been reduced due to monsoon precipitation.

Forest officials say restrictions that were in place on two ranger districts that include the Sandia and Manzano mountains near Albuquerque and its environs have been canceled.

Fire Management Officer Anthony Martinez of the Mountainair Ranger District says most people have respected the fire restrictions and that there have been a few abandoned campfires.
