Doyle, CA, July 18, 2017 – High winds continued through the afternoon with gusts reaching 44 mph. Very little fire activity was seen throughout the day and there was no new growth in size. Crews will continue to work through the evening to secure the last few pieces of line, continue mop-up and prep for suppression repair work. The spike camp will remain at Sutcliffe tonight.

Weather conditions are expected to improve tonight after the red flag warning expires. A dry air mass will remain in place through Friday with mostly clear skies, highs in the low 90’s, and low humidity.

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.

Even though there is little active fire behavior, there is still a high risk of fire in the surrounding area. Please heed the fire restrictions in place for federal lands and use common sense where ever you are.

Watch for fire vehicles moving around in the area as crews finish the job of putting the fire out.
