There were no injuries reported in the fire on Kildeer Lane at 5:38 a.m. February 17, 2019. No cause has been determined.

Crews describe the fire as difficult, as they were hampered by weather, much burnable material in the path of the fire and problems getting crews and equipment in position to fight the fire.

Reno Fire Chief David Cochran praised the efforts of firefighters in freezing temperatures, saying at one point they had to remove a wall to get water on the fire.
