The Long Valley Fire that started last Tuesday near Doyle, California is now fully contained.

The fire burned 83,733 acres before fire crews were able to reach full containment.

Firefighters and resource advisers are working to repair roads and hillsides to restore the area to its previous condition and to prevent further damage. 

Authorities say any smoke from the fire area is coming from the interior of the burned sections.

There is an air quality advisory for Friday. Smoke coming from the Detwiler Fire in Mariposa County nearly 300 miles away is producing decreased air quality and visibility for communities in the Reno area. The smoke is not originally from the Long Valley Fire. Due to the diminished air quality, people are advised to remain indoors and avoid strenuous outdoor activities in the affected areas.

The fire is under investigation, but officials believe it was human caused. 

The fire has cost more than $5.2 million to fight. 

The evacuation advisory for the community of Sutcliffe has been lifted. Nevada State Route 445 is now open north of its intersection with Nevada State Route.

    With the area finally seeing some more winter weather this week, REMSA officials are reminding people to be prepared for anything, during the colder temperatures. So far this winter, REMSA has only responded to about five calls regarding hypothermia and frostbite. Fortunately, that number is down from around 19 this same time last year. But, officials say that is no reason to be lax about winter weather preparedness.
