What's happening in the Bosque is getting concerning. Three fires were reported in just a week.

Now the Albuquerque Fire Department is getting a jump start on what could be a dangerous issue this spring. The department launched its Bosque patrol, which will be on the lookout for suspicious activity.

Firefighters are concerned about this spring considering there is a lot of dry brush that's easy to ignite and burn quickly.

"You know with the dry conditions we are in, we're seeing the above average temperatures and lack of moisture right now," AFD Wildlife Division Lt. Brian Fox said. "Things are a lot more susceptible to catch fire, and fire growths spread rapidly."

There is still no indication what caused the recent fires.
