MT. CHARLESTON, NV (FOX5) -
Six buildings have been destroyed by a wildfire that has been burning near Mt. Charleston for more than a week, officials said Wednesday.
A lightning strike started the blaze in the Carpenter Canyon area on the western side of the mountain July 1.
On Wednesday evening, the U.S. Forest Service said more than 1,000 firefighters were battling the 25,524-acre blaze. The roughly 40-square-mile fire was 15 percent contained.
Two firefighters have been injured, one suffering a twisted ankle and the other injuring his knee. Both are expected to be OK and return to the mountain in the coming days.
Fire managers on Wednesday evening reported progress in Kyle Canyon, where fire continues to back slowly down the ridge.
However, fire activity did increase Wednesday in the southeast section of the fire in the Red Rock Conservation Area, expanding southeast onto Bureau of Land Management property.
Officials said Tuesday that the fire jumped State Route 157, prompting them to close the road at mile marker 6.
Also on Tuesday, the wildfire destroyed its first structure - a commercial out-building in the Prospect Ranch area, according to the spokeswoman. James Stone, also a spokesman for the Forest Service, said five more buildings in the same area were destroyed by Wednesday morning.
Helicopters dropped 162,000 gallons of water on the fire on Tuesday, according to inciweb.org, a website used to provide information about the blaze. Air tankers carrying fire retardant are also being used to battle the blaze.
Since the blaze started, more than 500 residents have been evacuated from Kyle, Lee and Trout canyons. Residents were being allowed inside the evacuation zone with an escort.
There are two shelters set up to assist evacuees - one at Hafen Elementary School in Pahrump, and the other at James Bilbray Elementary School in Las Vegas. The Southern Nevada chapter of the American Red Cross said they need donations to help fund their relief efforts.
So far, $9.48 million has been spent in an effort to contain the blaze.
Sen. Dean Heller, R-NV, said Gov. Brian Sandoval's request for aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency has been approved, but it was not immediately clear when state agencies could expect to receive federal help.
Officials have closed the Spring Mountain Recreation Area. Several roads are also closed, including Lovell Canyon, Trout Canyon, Lovell Summit, Carpenter Canyon and Wallace Canyon roads at Highway 160. The Bristlecone, South Loop, North Loop and Griffith Park trails have also been closed.
Officials said Monday they expect to have the fire contained by July 19.
A fire information hotline has been set up at 702-799-4610.
