Here’s a look at some local news brought to you by Silver City Radio. In Gila National Forest news, as of 6:00 A.M. this morning, the Black Fire has covered 296,895 acres with 45% containment. A total of 905 personnel is working the fire. According to the U.S Forest Service, as the Southwestern monsoon season draws nearer, thunderstorms are forecast for the next few days. These storms will increase relative humidity levels but are also expected to bring strong, gusty wind and dry lightning. In addition, a new fire camp is being established to the east of Hillsboro and the fire camps in Winston and Kingston will be closed. This allows for firefighters working in this area to have a shorter drive time, thereby providing safety for our firefighters. There is a Black Fire Community Meeting scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday evening at 6:00 P.M. at the Black Range Lodge Hall in Kingston.
