Poeville Fire Update June 30 2020

Poeville Wildfire
News – 6/30/2020

Poeville Fire

Carson Ranger District, June 30, 2020

  • Acres: 3,010

  • Location: Eastside of Peavine Mountain, Northwest Reno

  • Start Date: June 26, 2020

  • Cause: Under investigation

  • Containment: 70%

  • Personnel: 162

    Current Activity: There was minimal fire activity yesterday. Heat was found within the mountain mahogany shrub stands and crews continue to cool these areas.

    Today’s weather forecast calls for warmer temperatures and little wind. Crews will continue looking for hot spots and potential problem areas as well as assessing the burned areas for damage impacts.

    As fire suppression slows down and the repair of dozer and hand lines is starting, we have started releasing resources as they are no longer needed.

    With the fire winding down and the smoke no longer visible, there is a tendency to believe there is no longer a threat. We would like to remind the public that the fire area is still full of many hidden dangers, including ashpits, rolling rocks, and burned vehicles. We are asking the public to please stay out of the area to allow the firefighters to do the job of suppression and repair.

    Motorists are asked to be vigilant as firefighter vehicles and equipment travel down roadways. When encountering fire traffic please slow down, be patient, and drive safely.

    Evacuations: All evacuations have been lifted.
