RENO, Nev. (AP) — Fire officials hoped for cooperative weather as they battled a wildfire that narrowly missed an upscale subdivision in the Sierra foothills just west of Reno.
Officials said the blaze would pose a risk to about 50 homes in the Somersett development if high winds returned. No houses had been damaged, but flames came within 100 feet of some homes Friday.
The fire was largely burning on U.S. Forest Service land but edged across Reno city lines. It was 20 percent contained and no estimate was available on when containment might be complete.
