RENO, NV - A house in Red Rock is no longer habitable Wednesday after a fire set it ablaze.
Several fire agencies responded to 355 Appaloosa Circle around 10:45 a.m., after a neighbor called to report a structure fire.
Upon arrival, crews found heavy, active fire at the 4500-square-foot two-story single family residence.
The fire caused significant heat and smoke damage throughout the residence but the structure was not a total loss. As of 5 p.m., firefighters were still on scene conducting extensive overhaul operations. The occupants of the residence have made alternative living arrangements.
It appears the fire began in the garage of the home but it is still under investigation.
No injuries were reported. One resident was present at the time of the fire but firefighters are not sure if the person was actually inside of the home when the fire broke out.
There was less damage to a house in northwest Reno Wednesday afternoon, on Allen Glen Drive. Firefighters took less than half an hour to put out flames that started in a shed, then spread to the outside of the house.
There is minimal damage to the inside, and it's up to the residents, who were not home at the time, whether to stay there overnight.
Firefighters don't know what started the fire.
