Fires Plague Nevada-California Border Area

Sponsored by:

Bone-dry conditions and gusty winds are fueling a series of large wild fires across northern Nevada again
today, including a 35-thousand-acre blaze that threatens a stretch of the historic California Trail north of Battle Mountain.

Temperatures in the 90s and
humidity readings in single digits are hampering the 14-hundred firefighters working Nevada fire lines literally from border to border.

Winds in some
places have been gusting to 25 miles per hour.
