- The Associated Press published a news release from the USFS stating
that the number of engines stationed in Nevada and the Eastern Sierra
will be almost doubled next year as part of a stronger initial attack
strategy. New equipment is slated for Vegas, Elko, Ely, Mountain
City, Sparks, Genoa, Tonopah or Austin, and Markleeville, CA.
In addition, 5 hot shot crews will be added to the Great Basin area,
stationed in Elko, Salt Lake, Cedar City, Boise, and Pocatello.
The government plans to reduce fuel loads in the area by conducting
prescribed burns and bring in a whole lotta sheep.
