Smoke Plume, Carpenter1 Fire on Mt. Charleston, NV Day 186 of 365

This is the Mt. Charleston Fire… It is estimated to be cover 7000 to 9000 acres of forest covering the Spring Mountains in Southern Nevada. These hills are covered in pines, even very old Bristlecones at the highest elevations. It is very dry and still at Zero Containment. Still lots of black smoke and hope that the wind calms down over night and tomorrow… added a new gallery here:!i=2617476538&k=hxtF8dL
