ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque Fire Rescue and the city’s Open Space Division announced Tuesday several Open Space areas have reopened.

The announcement comes as the Albuquerque metro has received over two inches of rain in 12 days after 78 days of no measurable rain. The lack of rain caused extreme fire danger that prompted the Open Space areas to close.

The following East Mountain Open Spaces have reopened:

  • Carolina Canyon
  • Gutierrez-Milne
  • San Antonito
  • Juan Tomas
  • Loma Ponderosa
  • Golden
  • Placitas

While those areas have reopened, community members are still asked to be cautious and report any suspicious behavior.
