Yesterday my buddy Gary drove us off road up to nearby Bald Mountain to to check out the Numbers Fire east of Gardnerville Nevada that has been burning out of control for a few days. While out on the trails he led a fire crew in their truck to the right road to get to the fire front lines.
By this time, two days after the fires had begun, the burned areas had grown to 20,000 acres with zero containment.
We parked about a half a mile away on the north side of Bald Mountain and could see the fire spreading across a ridge across from us that kept getting worse over time as it hit and sparked trees which burned up fast like a gas bomb, crazy. You’ll see it in the video.
