Lightning strike starts small fire on Mount Charleston

Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A small fire caused by a lightning strike on Mount Charleston has the U.S. Forest Service’s attention, but efforts to extinguish the blaze might wait until Thursday.

A tweet from the Forest Service indicates the fire burned two trees on Wednesday.

Rain in the region could end up doing the job before firefighters can reach the site.

This year marks the six-year anniversary of the Carpenter One fire, an enormous blaze that burned about 28,000 acres in the Spring Mountains.
