The Mahogany Fire is now 100 percent contained at 5,121 acres. Residents and visitors can expect to see smoke in the area, as patches of mountain mahogany trees continue to burn off within the fire perimeter. These burn-offs pose no risk to containment lines. The fire will continue to be patrolled.
The Mahogany Fire is located about nine miles south of Denio in the northern part of the BLM Winnemucca District. The fire started on July 23, when a storm cell moved over the area, generating extensive dry lightning and igniting multiple fires.
Northwest Interagency Incident Management Team 8 assumed command of the fire on July 25. On July 30, command was transferred to a smaller Type 4 team.
