Tractor-trailer rig apparently started brush fire along US 395
RENO, Nev. (KOLO) -A brush fire along U.S. 395 near Parr Boulevard stopped and then slowed traffic on Friday.
It started Friday about 6:14 p.m. and stopped all southbound traffic for more than a half hour. Then two lanes reopened and one lane was closed for about 45 minutes.
The Reno Fire Department said it appears a tractor-trailer rig passing through had something dangling that caused sparks and ignited four spot fires.
The fires then grew together and reached about 2 acres.
There were no injuries and no evacuations.
