ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Bernalillo County has joined the list of governments and agencies ending fire restrictions as rainy weather dampens the fire season.
Early Tuesday afternoon the county Fire Marshal's Office released this statement:
"Due to recent precipitation that has reduced fire danger in Bernalillo County, the Bernalillo County Fire Marshal's Office is rescinding the fire and open burning restrictions that were imposed May 14 for all unincorporated areas of Bernalillo County.
"This order goes into effect at 5 p.m. today, July 16.
"The public is urged to use fire cautiously and safely. The burning of dried tumbleweeds is now allowed in piles no larger than 3 feet by 2 feet. The burning of any other material is prohibited.
"The burn hours will be from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. The public is reminded that they must first call the Burn Line number at 468-7200 to ensure that open burning is allowed."
The New York Times calls "American Idiot" "wonderfully raucous" and "emotionally charged."
Manners matter especially during the holiday season.
