Investigators are looking into an early morning house fire that left a Reno man injured. So far they have been unable to rule out arson as the cause. Now they are hoping to talk with anyone who may have additional information.
A neighbor reported the fire at 825 Gear Street just before 3:30 AM. A man who was inside the house when the fire started says he awoke to find a portion of the bedroom and doorway on fire. He was treated for moderate injuries on his hands. Crews were able to extinguish the structure fire quicky, containing damage to the bedroom and portions of the attic.
Fire investigators are not saying the fire was intentionally set at this time, but are hoping to collect more information. Anyone with additional information is asked to call the Reno Fire Department at (775) 334-2300 or Secret Witness at (775) 322-4900 to remain anonymous.
