forest fire

Fire Contained

At 6:30 am KRNV TV reported the fire has been contained by hand crews overnite to one and a half acres. The crew will continue to work at the site throughout the day. No word on the cause yet.

Fire Update

7 pm. The helicopter left probably due to darkness. I can see flashlights just above the flames so maybe firefighters on the ground are making their way to it.

Slide Mt. Fire

We noticed this fire on the eastern slope of Slide Mt. tonight at about 6:15pm when I took this photo. A Helicopter with a bucket is dropping water on it now. It seems to be creeping along on the ground and not getting up in the trees yet.Slide fire
