RENO, NV. (KOLO) -- The Reno Fire Department contained a fast growing brush fire to one acre near the University of Nevada, Reno.

The fire at Valley Road and Enterprise Road, northeast of campus, was sparked around 9:00 p.m. Monday. No cause has been determined.

Reno Fire Battalion Chief Mike Pilcher says it was stopped ten minutes after it was reported.

The burning brush was dry and stood about two feet tall.

Pilcher says this is shaping up to be a bad wildfire year and is asking homeowners to build defensible space around their homes.
