A fire swept through a strip mall in the heart of Reno today. Fire crews responded to the flames around 3:40, by that time several of the stores on Kietzke and Moana were fully engulfed.
The Antojitos, Nextel, and Port of Subs stores were completely destroyed. The Happy Looker Hair Salon and Enterprise Car Rental have severe smoke and ceiling damage.
Initial investigation lead officials to believe that a mattress behind the Nextel store caught fire, perhaps by a cigarette, and then high winds spread the fire into the strip mall.
No one was hurt. Investigation continues.
