The fire risk in Nevada led the Bureau of Land Management, Nevada Division of Forestry and Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest to enact more stringent fire restrictions on state and federal lands statewide, effective Aug. 7. All open flame campfires were banned as much of the state was in severe drought and monsoon rains had not materialized. Carson (Nev.), Aug 11, 2020
