Two BLM Firefighters Dead, One Injured After Crash on SR 140
July 11, 2016 at 12:16 AM
The Bureau of Land Management says two firefighters died and one was injured in a single vehicle crash Sunday on Nevada State Route 140.

The BLM says the firefighters were returning from duty in the Denio area, near the Oregon state line. They were on their way back to Winnemucca in the south-bound lane when the crash occurred.

The names of the three firefighters are being withheld until the next of kin are notified. The injured BLM employee was flown to Renown Medical Center in Reno.

The crash is currently under investigation.
