WASHOE COUNTY, Nev. (KOLO) - The Long Valley Fire has burned 83,733 acres, or about 131 square miles. It is fully contained.

Fire suppression efforts will continue as crews mop up hot spots.

The fire started July 11, 2017 near Doyle, Calif., and burned into the north end of Spanish Springs Valley toward Pyramid Lake.

Pyramid Highway, SR 445, is back open after being closed in both directions just north of SR 446 because the fire was headed toward the Sutcliffe area. An evacuation advisory has been lifted for that community.

Over the course of the fire, there were several voluntary evacuation advisories, all since lifted.

The cause of the fire has not been determined.
