ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Firefighters are getting more help from Mother Nature as the battle wildfires across New Mexico.

Rain fell on the state's largest wildfire, the 216-square-mile Silver Fire in the Gila National Forest.  

In northern New Mexico, the growth potential of the Jaroso Fire burning in the Pecos Wilderness was also less thanks to recent wet weather and higher humidity levels.
