Reno, NV - The fire happened Sunday morning not long after midnight on Barry M Circle. Relatives and neighbors have identified the victim as Bernard Robinson, who was in his 80s. Neighbors say he lived there as long as they can remember. They also say that his two identical twin sons also lived there on-and-off. In fact, one of them, Ricky Robinson, was at the home when it erupted in flames. He was found unconscious and was taken to the hospital.
Neighbors describe Robinson, who was known as "Robbie," as a very nice and gentle man. Many were crushed to hear what had happened.
Detectives hope to interview Ricky Robinson when he starts to recover.
