There are 6-7 residences in the fire area, about 2-3 miles outside of the fire perimeter. Monitoring continues to establish structure protection as needed.

Mike Whalen’s Type II Incident Management Team will take over this fire at 0600 on 7/17.

This northern flank of this fire has run into an old burn area, slowing the progression of the blaze. Firefighters will continue constructing direct fire line along the flanks of the fire.

Aircraft are being used to cool the fire ahead of the handcrews.

Hwy-395 and Red Rock Road are both currently open with no controls. Travelers are requested to watch out for fire apparatus and vehicles in and around the fire area.
