Evacuation areas for the Nakia Creek Fire were pulled back this morning as fire managers get a better sense of fire activity following changes in weather overnight.
The Nakia Creek Fire had grown tenfold since Friday to 1,565 acres on Sunday as hot, dry and windy weather gave new life to a fire that had been smoldering the better part of last week.
According to Northwest Interagency Coordination Center, the east Clark County fire is 0 percent contained.
No structures have been damaged by the fire and no injuries have been reported, according to Sharon Steriti, spokeswoman for the Department of Natural Resouces.
CRESA said in a 10 a.m. statement that crews will be working on the north, west and south sides of the fire today. Additionally, there are structure protection crews working.
Evacuation zones have shrunk since Sunday night, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office. Some roads have also reopened, including Northeast 53rd Street to Northeast 292nd Avenue and Northeast Blair Road to state Highway 500. Closures remain in the areas of Lessard, Ireland, Livingston Mountain, Boulder Creek and Winters. The L1000 and L1400 roads are also still closed.
