Doyle, CA, July 18, 2017 – The fire has withstood high winds gusts of over 30 mph with no reported spot fires. Forward progression of the fire was held overnight; the amount of acreage burned has remained the same since our evening report. A spike camp for fire personnel is now set up in Sutcliffe. Helicopters will continue to work closely with ground forces today to construct and improve fire lines, and mop-up work will continue.

The evacuation advisory for the community of Sutcliffe has been lifted. Nevada State Route 445 is now open north of its intersection with Nevada State Route 446.

A red flag warning will be in place today between 12 PM and 8 PM. Strong winds and very low humidity are expected again and could cause renewed fire behavior. The fire conditions could increase without warning, and the situation remains dynamic. Residents living in or around the fire area should continue to monitor the situation for any changes today.

The fire area looks much better today, however, firefighters are still working throughout the area. Please stay clear and support the firefighters in completing the job.
