Two volunteer firefighters were injured when their vehicle was burned over in the Corta Fire south of Jiggs, and the Elko County Fire Protection District is advising people to stay away from the area.
The incident occurred during the initial attack on Sunday, shortly after the blaze was started by lightning.
“One firefighter was evaluated and released back to duty; the other was evaluated and transported to the University of Utah Trauma Center in Salt Lake City for further evaluation,” stated the fire district. “He has since been released, is home and is doing well.”
