The Forest Service says the 9,196-acre Range 2 Fire near Spring Creek is now 98% contained.

Nevada's fire marshal is asking for the public's help in the search for the target shooters who are believed to have sparked the wildfire in the Ruby Mountains.

State investigators say the fire started the morning of Sept. 30 behind the Spring Creek Shooting range southeast of Elko.

The fire has since destroyed an historic camp lodge and temporarily trapped several campers and hikers above Lamoille Canyon.

If anyone with information that could help identify the person or persons who started the fire they should contact the fire marshal's office at 775-684-7500.

The Forest Service says portions of Lamoille Canyon remain closed to the public.
