SANTA FE (AP) - A northern New Mexico national forest that experienced several major wildfires in June is lifting fire restrictions that have been in effect for much this summer.
    
The Santa Fe National Forest's announcement of its lifting of the restrictions effective Friday morning says increased moisture from monsoon rain in the past several weeks has dramatically the danger of wildfires.
    
The forest says the areas of the Tres Lagunas, Thompson Ridge and Jaroso fires will remain closed for public safety.
