Pizona Fire morning update June 27, 2024

Acreage: 540           
Percent Containment: 0%
Current Resources: 5 hand crews, 5 engines, 4 helicopters, 2 air tankers, 1 air attack, 2 water tenders, 20 overhead.
Resources at risk: powerlines and sage grouse habitat

Summary:

Last night, the Pizona Fire grew approximately 200 acres from 300 to 540 while ground resources arrived on scene for a full suppression response.

Due to the remoteness of the fire’s location east of Adobe Valley in Mineral County, Nevada, logistics remain the biggest challenge for managing this fire. Air resources will be used as the primary suppression tactic, with assistance from a smokejumper crew out of a remote base in Porterville, California.

The fire is currently located within the Inyo National Forest boundary, approximately one-half mile from the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, and one mile from Bureau of Land Management land.

The fire was determined to be caused by lightning. There are no structures threatened and no evacuations in place.

Breaking updates on this fire will be posted to Inyo National Forest’s Facebook page and website when possible:
