Look at these two fire whirls on the ‘E’ fire caught on September 7, 2017 near Lamoille summit outside Elko!
The “E” Fire broke out on Elko Mountain below the “E” around 12:30 p.m. Thursday, September 7 and has now burned more than 350 acres.
At this time there is no mandatory evacuation order in effect. The Sheriff’s Office is notifying residents in the immediate area of this fire of the potential danger of this fire for their safety, not for evacuation purposes.
The fire shut down both directions of State Route 227 earlier in the day.
Now, one lane between Elko and Spring Creek has been reopened while crews battle a nearby wildfire. You can get the latest road conditions here.
