FIRE UPDATE- The 3,487 acre Cherry Fire, located 20 miles Southeast of Jiggs, Nevada, is 100% contained. Firefighters devoted efforts yesterday to suppression repair and mop up operations. Suppression repair activities will continue with heavy equipment.

Resources have been gradually demobilizing as containment percentage improved, and most remaining resources will be released from the fire today.

The Burned Area Emergency Response Team (BAER) from the Forest Service has been brought in to evaluate the fire area to determine the next steps for post-fire rehabilitation.

Nevada Type 3 Team 1 (Hecht) will transition the fire back to the local unit in Elko tomorrow.
