Two Brushfires North of Reno, Near Gerlach and Nixon
Two small brushfires north of Reno are now both fully contained.
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.
