Posted: Updated:

Mt. Charleston -- Residents of Trout and Lovell Canyons will be allowed to return to their homes from the Mt. Charleston fire Sunday at 10 a.m.

Lee Canyon residents may be allowed back on Monday.

It has not yet been determined when the residents of Kyle Canyon will be able to return.

Those returning to Trout and Lovell will pass through checkpoints staffed by LVMPD, NHP and other law enforcement officers. They will need to show proof of residency.

Re-entry into these mountain communities is being allowed by fire unified command. They say it is now safe to occupy these areas.

Officials anticipate that 24 hours after reentry to Trout and Lovell Canyons by the residents, the checkpoints will removed and there will be full public access.

The Carpenter 1 fire has been burning since July 1, burning 27,881 acres. The fire has been deemed 45 percent contained.
