Mount Charleston Fire

Don’t let the wisps of smoke in the distance scare you. The fires smoldering on the steepest peaks near Mount Charleston — visible remnants of the 28,000-acre Carpenter 1 Fire — will be there to stay for weeks or maybe months, but the public can re-enter the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area today. Residents were allowed to return to Kyle Canyon on Wednesday. On Thursday, businesses were busily preparing to welcome back guests after two weeks of shuttered doors.
