Reports keep coming in to the Carson City Fire Department that the recent wildland fire atop Prison Hill keeps re-igniting. Neighbors down below the hill have been calling in to report a re-kindle of the fire that broke-out from lightning strikes a few weeks ago. But every time the fire department rushes out to the site it’s just another dust devil kicking up the dry dust left behind from the original fire.
So, for those along Carson River Road who have a front row seat on that particular hillside, look at it real close. Make sure it’s just a dust devil created by the wind flowing from west to east. So far, all the reports turned out to be exactly that.
