The Las Vegas Sun is reporting that a fire is burning in the Sheep Range, which are the mountains south west of the base. It has been burning for a
week and there are no plans to put it out. That is sometimes the case in the desert since there isn't very much fuel to sustain a fire. That is, they
often let the fire just burn itself out.
I suspect viewing conditions of Groom Lake from Tikaboo Peak will be obscured by the smoke.
