The fire began Monday and is located six miles north of Hallelujah junction in BLM’s Carson City District.

Crews are still focusing on building containment lines.

BLm has urged onlookers to stay out of the area, and residents were urged to take precautions to avoid health problems stemming from smoky conditions.
