Big fire near Charleston Peak, NV

So far, about 11000 acres burned. The fire started on the south side near Carpenter Canyon, sparked by lightning. A big change in winds sent it to the ridge between Griffith and Charleston. The Spring Mountain area is mainly closed to access right now. For us, this is a huge fire.
