A fire burning in the saddle between Jobs Peak and Jobs Sister is visible from Carson Valley, but not accessible.

East Fork firefighters confirmed a smoke plume after receiving a report at 10:18 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12.

Aerial resources will have to be used to extinguish what is estimated to be a tenth of an acre fire, according to the Sierra Front Interagency Dispatch.

Western Nevada experienced heavy lightning on Monday night, Sept. 11, which may be responsible for the fire.
