Reno Home Badly Damaged After Fire

Posted: Updated:

The Reno Fire Department is investigating how a home was caught fire Monday night.

The fire broke out just after 6 p.m. at a home on Royal Drive in Reno.

Firefighters say when they got there the garage was fully involved and the wind and heat quickly pushed the flames to the rest of the home.

The person who lived there was able to escape without suffering injuries.

A battalion chief from the Reno Fire Department says the heat also challenged firefighters. The hot temperatures outside mixed with the flames from the inside of the house made for tough conditions.

Fire crews spent much of the time after the fire rehydrating and getting their core body temperatures down so they could be ready for another fire.
