The Numbers Fire, burning 10 miles southeast of Gardnerville, Nevada, started on Monday, July 6. Multiple local, state, and federal wildland fire agencies are assisting with numerous fire resources working on the fire. Resources on scene include heavy equipment, hand crews, and aviation.
Although the fire is at 100% containment at 18,380 acres, fire vehicles and heavy equipment will be completing suppression repair work over the next few days. Please drive cautiously in the area, and limit use of Pinenut 2 and Blossom Canyon Roads to residents only. Smoke may be visible as the fire continues to consume interior islands of unburned vegetation.
Great Basin Incident Management Team 4 will transition control of the Numbers Fire back to the local BLM Carson City District Wednesday, July 15. Thank you for the ongoing community and partner assistance and support.
