Both fires on the east side of Peavine Mountain were started by lightning the night of July 14, 2018.

There were no evacuations for either fire.

The Hoge Fire was northwest of Rancho San Rafael Regional Park; the Kiowa Fire was about a mile north of the Hoge Fire.

Both fires were on land managed by the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest.

Also, Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District says crews spent Saturday night mopping up two much smaller fires in the Antelope Valley area north of Reno.

Lightning caused other fires Saturday night in the areas of Reno-Stead Airport and Red Rock, as well as elsewhere throughout Washoe County.
