Experts from around the country are predicting that this year's fire season is going to be bad, especially for New Mexico. Currently, the state's extreme drought is causing vegetation to become dangerously flammable – which is worrying local fire departments. KSFR's Bryce Dix spoke with Santa Fe County Fire Department Fire Prevention Specialist Jeffry Folgate about they will be tackling the season and to give advice on how Northern New Mexicans can prevent fires from happening.
