Staff Reports

The fire was first reported to be a quarter-acre in size; however, moderate fuels and winds fed flames and caused slight spotting.

The fire was located near the Nevada Department of Transportation building off Pinenut Road. Additional units were called in for traffic control while East Fork personnel tried to contain the blaze.

By noon Tuesday, firefighters had the flames knocked down and were mopping up the scene.

No homes were threatened by the fire. The cause is being investigated.
