A house at 2945 Susileen Drive in Reno and the nearby brush caught on fire Tuesday evening.
The Reno Fire Department says one or more people safely evacuated.
Authorities say they're still investigating what caused the fire and whether it started in the brush or home.
The fire was knocked down, but an official says the brush fire threatened other nearby homes.
A firefighter appeared to be putting ice on his hand, but RFD could not confirm whether anyone was injured.
