Capitan Mayor Dennis Haskell signed the ban Tuesday, which applies to all local open fires inside village limits. Haskell said the reasoning for the ban stems from a lack of moisture and some serious wind gusts.

Three other burn bans were issued across the state in January. Mora County is experiencing a county-wide burn ban. There are also several burn bans in place in Colfax County, including Angel Fire and the Farley, Miami, French Tract, Vermejo Park and Raton fire districts.
