RENO, Nev. (AP) - A California fire on national forest land near Nevada is mostly contained, but smoke will be visible through the summer.

KRNV-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1HziZa0) the National Forest Service said in a news release that smoke from the 17,790-acre fire burning on the Carson Ranger District south of Reno will probably get thicker while fuel dries out and heat and humidity rises.

Carson Ranger District Fire Management Officer Mike Wilde says fire crews are continuing to monitor the area and will take action if smoke poses a risk to containment lines or firefighter safety.

Wilde says people should avoid the burned area, which is littered with safety hazards.
