Heavenly spot fire update, June 30 11:10 p.m.

This is from the Reno Gazette-Journal:

Spot fire snuffed out
Posted: 6/30/2007

While firefighters steadily gained ground against the Angora Fire Saturday, a smaller spot fire sprang to life near their incident command center at Heavenly ski resort.

That's the latest from Steve Johnson of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
"It was basically a slash pile at a logging area," he said. "They were able to knock it down fairly quickly."
No injuries were reported as a result of the fire. It grew to roughly 1,000 square feet before it was extinguished, Johnson said. The blaze was discovered about 2:45 p.m. and contained within an hour, he said.
Officials were investigating the source of the fire.
