Bernalillo County commissioners have approved a resolution banning open burning and campfires and restricting smoking in some unincorporated areas in the county.

Fire Chief John Garcia said the county is encouraging residents and visitors to be aware of the fire danger and report any fires or suspicious activity in wildland areas.

The resolution states that severe drought conditions exist and those conditions affect the safety and welfare of residents and their property.

The bans and restrictions will be in effect for the next 180 days.
