Despite the wet spring New Mexico has had, authorities are warning residents to be on the alert for fire danger in the bosque. 

Tuesday, Open Space officers came across a makeshift camp hidden in heavy brush. There was an abandoned campfire with cans of lighter fluid and a barbecue pit with charcoal and butane torches. 

The Albuquerque Police Department is asking the public to keep their eyes peeled and to report anything suspicious in the area to authorities.
