Corta Fire Wildfire
News – 8/19/2019

The Corta Fire located approximately 10 miles southeast of Jiggs, Nevada has been declared 100% contained today. The fire’s final acreage was 16,526 acres.

The public may still see some interior smoke due to the size of the fire and the amount of inaccessible terrain.

Elko County Road 718 (Harrison Pass Road) is fully open and the area is available for recreational uses such as hunting and hiking. Visitors are reminded that safety hazards will exist on the burned area long after the fire is out. Potential hazards include falling trees and unstable rocks and slopes where stabilizing vegetation has been lost.
