CalFire’s GrassValley S2’s are on this along with two SEATS out of Stead. T167 out of Redding just launched. Fire WX is potential for dry lightning day and night. Some cells in area tracking south to north in area of Pyramid Lake.

EDIT 1936: Slow rate of spread on the flanks now, head is either cut off or ran out of fuel. Another new start off the Fox Mtn camera to the north. That cell over Fox had heavy but short-lived precip.

My only update on this - well out of my sphere of intel, just heard T167 off my local base, and cool to see some CalFire aircraft helping on IA on that.

SFC is the designator for the dispatch center. Looking on Sierra Front’s wildweb page, this is showing as a TMFX incident. I believe that is Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District.

It is now showing up on wildweb with as a NV-CCD (Carson City District BLM) fire, which makes sense given the location. Resources showing as assigned on wildweb:
