The Silver Fire burning in the Gila Wilderness is closer to complete containment.

Crews have improved the fire's containment to 80 percent.

Crews are also focusing on the burn scar to reduce flooding and erosion from the recent rains.

The Silver Fire has burned more than 138,000 acres near the town of Kingston.
