Fires have burned nearly 900-thousand acres in Nevada so far this year, and the costs to battle the blazes are expected to total at least seven-point-six million dollars. Last year's toll was one-point-three million acres and ten million dollars in suppression costs.
Meanwhile, fire crews have halted the spread of Nevada's only active wildfire -- a blaze that has blackened about 35-hundred acres seven miles west of Carlin. And, a blaze that started as a home fire off Last Chance Road at the southeast edge of Elko destroyed the residence and burned about 25 acres.
