Rewards totaling $20,000 have been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) who started the Martin Fire. See the BLM news release dated 07/20/18. Over 435,000 acres were involved in the incident, which began on the evening of 07/04/18 approximately seven miles north of Paradise Valley, NV. Winds pushed the flames eastward for 50 miles. Investigators have determined that it was man-caused.
Almost certainly the fire crossed the Little Owyhee HMA, and probably reached into the Owyhee HMA, although it was not mentioned in the news release. BLM will likely assess its impact on horses, livestock and wildlife.
