Jacks Valley Fire 6.10.21Image options: [ Full Size ]

The Jacks Valley fire started south of Jacks Valley Road in Carson City on June 9th, 2021. Multiple state, federal and local agencies responded and began suppression operations in coordination with both fixed and rotor wing aircraft.

The fire exhibited extreme fire behavior during initial attack. High winds drove the fire to the south and east, prompting several evacuations in the Indian Hills and Jacks Valley area and closing Jacks Valley Road. All evacuations were lifted this morning and Jacks Valley Road has reopened. Over 900 homes in the area were without power, which has since been restored.

The fire is 285 acres and now 100% contained. The Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest has transitioned to command of the fire.
