RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Reno Fire Department is investigating a house fire that appears to have started in the garage of a home Monday night.

Firefighters were called to a home on Rivolli Court near Veterans Parkway east of the Summit Mall around 5 p.m.

Fire officials say flames were already in the garage when crews arrived on scene, and they quickly spread to the attic. A portion of the roof caved in on the second floor, making the home unlivable.

It’s unclear how many people are living in the house. One firefighter is being evaluated for a minor injury. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
