New Sun Valley Fire Contained, 2 Homes Destroyed

By  | 

RENO, NV - Two mobile homes have been destroyed in the second Sun Valley fire in as many days.

Flames broke out shortly before 4PM Monday off 4th Avenue at Yukon. Several local engines and federal resources responded. The fire has been contained, but because of high wind, fire crews stayed through the night. There are no reports of injuries, though one firefighter was treated for smoke inhalation.

Beside the two destroyed homes, at least one more home and some outbuildings were damaged.

The cause of the fire hasn't been determined, though investigators say it started as a brush fire that moved to a shed, then to the homes.

Two mobile homes also burned along Chocolate Drive in Sun Valley Sunday afternoon. That fire is also still under investigation.
