NM Fire Info
Almost daily, there have been several airplances and helicopters flying over Silver City. For those of you who live in more metropolitan areas, the sound of aircraft overhead is so common that it is probably not even noticed by most. On the other hand, in this area, the sound of aircraft overhead is a love/hate thing. Hate it because it means fire; love it because it means people are fighting those fires. The monsoon season doesn't start around here until the first week of July, so we have a long dry spell before the rain comes.
