SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico is closing a fifth state park and part of a sixth because of extreme danger of wildfires.

The Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department announced Wednesday that Manzano Mountains State Park and the Las Tusas Recreation Area within Bluewater Lake State Park are being closed Friday.

Manzano Mountain is 37 miles (60 kilometers) southeast of Albuquerque while Bluewater is 83 miles (134 kilometers) west of Albuquerque.

The department also says the June 1 closure of Cimarron Canyon State Park located 70 miles (113 kilometers) northeast of Santa Fe because of a major wildfire about 10 miles away will continue until at least July 8.

Fenton Lake, Hyde Memorial, and Morphy Lake state parks were closed previously.
