SPARKS, NV - Firefighters have contained a house fire in Spanish Springs and authorities say an arson investigation is warranted.
According to authorities, there is reason to believe the fire at 37 Patterson Place off of Pyramid Highway that began around 10:45 a.m., could have been arson.
Battalion Chief, Rick Kajons says there were multiple sources of the fire that included the living room and bedroom.
When asked how the crew was able to contain the fire so quickly, Kajons says it was luck that they noticed the fire while they were in the area looking into a road closure. He says had they not been near, the fire could very well have threatened neighboring homes.
One firefighter is seeking treatment at a hospital after he injured his hand on a broken window.
