Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Carpenter 1 wildfire is now fully contained after Sunday's rainstorms.
The fire ignited in July and burned nearly 28,000 acres of land in the Spring Mountains and Kyle Canyon.
However, Sunday's storms also sparked new fires in the Spring Mountains. Lightning strikes started four small fires that were about one-tenth of an acre.
Fire crews were able to extinguish them right away.
No injuries were reported.
Heavy rain also flooded parts of the area burned by the Carpenter 1 wildfire. Water built up between the visitor center and the Kyle Canyon picnic area.
In other areas, debris has been washed away.
