The Reno Fire Department says they responded to three brush fires that started at the same time along US-395 at Golden Valley to Parr Boulevard on Thursday afternoon.

The Reno Police Department said traffic was flowing in both directions, but slowly. 

Our crew on scene reports the north fire threatened propane tankers at the time, and the south fire threatened houses. 

They said the fires are under control now and crews are mopping up hot spots.

The cause of the fires is unknown.

This is a developing story.
