An early morning fire destroyed a home in Lyon County, sending one person to a hospital.
Fire crews with the Smith Valley Fire Protection District responded to the stucture fire on Wedertz Lane around 2:30am Friday.
Upon arrival crews determined they needed extra support to contain the blaze which had fully engulfed the home.
The Lyon County Sheriff's office says one victim was transported to the Carson Valley Medical Center with burns to the arm and smoke inhalation.
The American Red Cross has been contacted to help with other displaced residents.
At the time there is no report on what may have caused the fire. The Nevada State Fire Marshal's Office will investigate.
