Silver Fire active at 100 acres near Kingston

Incident Overview

The 100-acre lightning-ignited Silver Fire is active today. It is burning about 7 miles southwest of Kingston, New Mexico. Smoke is visible from Highway 152 and Silver City.


Firefighters are challenged by extremely rough terrain, a substantial amount of unburned fuel and beetle-killed trees, and extreme fire conditions. Firefighters have not been able to safely access the fire on the ground.
Two heavy air tankers and two heavy helicopters are working the fire today. Four heavy air tankers dropped retardant on the fire throughout yesterday, which slowed but did not halt the fire's spread.
