2011 was a bad year for wild land fires in Western Nevada. Local Teens started the first fire by being careless with a campfire. This fire in the Pinenuts area near Gardnerville Nevada was far to close, but we were prepared to stay and fight for a home there.As the summer continued lightning started two more fires which again brought about evacuations but were slightly closer to a major housing development. The Second fire, called the RayMay Fire was seen starting as two lightning strikes hit and left behind glowing orange rings that quickly spread in the wind. Thankfully re-seeding is ongoing.
