Growth tapered off overnight on Thursday for the Numbers Fire, burning near Gardnerville, according to Douglas County officials.
“Existing containment lines held despite gusty winds,” officials said in a press release Friday. Winds are expected to decrease on Friday, with hot temperatures.
The county cautioned drivers to be aware of increased fire traffic in the areas around the Douglas County Fairgrounds, as crews are working out of a firecamp on the grounds. They said drivers should also limit the use of Pinenut 2 and Blossom Canyon Roads; they are only open to residents.
