Fire burned within a mile of the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument in New Mexico Tuesday, then raged along the Gila River bed, burning a historic cabin and injuring one firefighter, authorities said.

The fire broke out shortly before 11 a.m. Tuesday in the Gila Wilderness along the west fork of the Gila River, about 3/4 mile above the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument, U.S. Forest Service spokesman Jim Paxon said.
