Two Brushfires North of Reno, Near Gerlach and Nixon

Posted: Updated:

The Gerlach Volunteer Fire Department says a brushfire first reported at 50 acres was fully contained at less than an acre early Friday morning.

A second fire located north of Nixon was also quickly contained at about half an acre. 

Pyramid Lake Fire Rescue says the Soldier Meadows Fire did burn a ranch building at Soldier Meadows Lodge north of the Black Rock Desert. They say this fire was human-caused. 

The Nixon Fire, meanwhile, remains under investigation after sparking at about 6:30 a.m. near the Post Office near Pyramid Highway. 

We have a crew headed to that area right now to gather more details.
