Wetlands Park officials say the decision was made out of caution, due to lingering smoke inside public areas following the fire on Wednesday, Dec. 29.

The Clark County Fire Department determined that the fire was contained to approximately 9 acres the night of the incident.

No structures or homes were damaged by the fire and no one was injured, according to fire officials.
