Incident Photo for the Dotta Fire

The Dotta Fire is currently 670 acres and 15% contained. The increase in acreage is due to the smoke column laying over onto Horton Ridge and causing some movement of the fire, including a spot fire. Five hotshots crews, three engines and two dozers made good progress today to increase the containment percentage. The Evacuation Advisory for Dixie Valley remains in effect.
