Afternoon thunderclouds rolling through Northern Nevada created enough lightning to start several small brushfires on Monday night.
The largest one is called the Sage Fire, and it has burned more than 120 acres across from Fernley High School.
The Dog Fire is burning about 30 miles north of Reno near Red Rock, and it has scorched close to 5 acres, prompting several retardant drops.
And the La Plata Fire has burned just under 20 acres about 24 miles east of Fallon.
No homes are being threatened, and crews expect to have all of these fires controlled by late Monday night or Tuesday.
