KINGSTON, N.M. (KRQE) - KRQE News 13 pilot-reporter Bob Martin is keeping watch on the Silver Fire as the massive blaze dances dangerously close to the town of Kingston.
Flames moved on the town in its mountain canyon Wednesday night as evacuated residents waited for news in nearby Hillsboro.
The threat continued into Thursday as the 18,000-acre fire rages through the south end of the Black Range in the Gila National Forest.
Even after burning all week across miles of forest and approaching the very edge of the town twice, the Silver Fire remains close and a very real threat.
The flames on Wednesday night came to within feet of this house on the west side of town. For the second night in a row, firefighters prevailed.
No homes were lost or damaged.
Patrols continue in town as other firefighters are at work in the forest and in the air.
Right above Kingston the Silver Fire showed no sign of letting up burning aggressively through both thick timber and areas of dry brush.
In its wake so far the blaze has left much of this part of the Black Range a charred wasteland from 10,020-foot Hillsboro Peak south across Emory Pass and through much the Mimbres Mountains.
Firefighting efforts continue to be hampered by the rough terrain and the widely scattered areas with active fire.
