As firefighters continue to battle the Trestle Creek Complex wildland fire, the Trestle 6, the largest fire in the complex, is continuing to slowly burn and expand, but is unlikely to reach homes, officials told members of the public at a community update Tuesday evening at the Clark Fork High School. Because of the terrain of Trestle 6, some areas are unsafe for firefighters to fight on the ground, so incident command has been using aerial drops to control the fire, particularly on the west end, said Jess Harvey, public information officer trainee for the Nevada Type 3 Incident Management Team. However, the incident has not been wind-driven, but a slow spread as individual trees catch on fire and spread sparks.
