Jackass Fire Containment Close

By  | 

Containment is expected by 6 p-m today of a wildland fire south of Reno on the Nevada-California line.
The Jackass fire in the Desert Creek area near Wellington has
burned about 62-hundred aces since it broke out Monday afternoon
from a lightning strike.
Cloudy skies and sometimes heavy rain has helped firefighters
over the last few days.
Fire officials plan a community meeting tonight (Friday) in
Walker, California, to brief residents on the status of the fire.
Walker is on the west flank of the fire line.
The Desert Creek Campground in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National
Forest, as well as backcountry roads leading into the forest,
remain closed.
