Light Winds Slow Progress of Tamarack Fire

Later today, winds are expected to shift to the northwest, according to the July 23 community briefing, steering the fire away from the Pine Nut Mountains HA (go to 12:35 in this video).

The burned area is now 65,100 acres with 4% containment.  The section along Highway 395 falls under Division O in this morning’s 9:00 AM report.

This photo was taken yesterday from the west side of the Virginia Range, about 50 miles north of the fire.
