Antelope Valley Fires Burn 6,000 Acres
Posting Date: 05/23/2012

Press Release

Two fires about 60 miles southwest of Battle Mountain in Antelope Valley burned more than 6,000 acres. Both fires were human caused and are under investigation. The fires were reported at 12:14 p.m. on May 14 and control was called at 10 a.m., on May 16.

There were structures in danger the first day and firefighters were able to handle the threat and save the buildings. There were no injuries on the incident. Three crews, eleven engines, and two dozers were assigned to these fires for a total of 96 fire personnel. Both fires were officially

contained as of 2 p.m., May 15, and most resources were released that evening. Some resources were held on the fire to complete the mop up.

Antelope 1 Fire burned approximately 2,500 acres and Antelope 2 Fire burned approximately 3,589 acres. The impacts of both fires are being assessed and appropriate rehabilitation measures are being developed.

This is a very dry year and it takes very little to get a fire started. Please be careful with anything that can cause a fire; matches, bullets, fireworks and cigarettes.

Please report all fires to Central Nevada Interagency Dispatch Center (CNIDC) at 775-623-3444.
