Mt. Charleston Fire

Saturday, July 3, 2010
On July 1st, a fire broke out near the Mt. Charleston lodge in Kyle Canyon, located just outside of the Las Vegas Valley. In the event that the fire spread to areas where campers or hikers were located, LVMPDSAR launched a support team containing the Huey, SAR officers, and volunteers. Because the fire department was able to contain the fire, rescue efforts were not needed.
