The Reno Fire Department has extinguished a house fire north of the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center.

Flames were reported about 2:30PM February 21, 2019 at the house on North Maddux Drive, which is closed until about 5PM.

No one was hurt. Damage was extensive enough that the family is displaced until repairs can be made. Firefighters say several additions had been made to the house since it was built, leaving several places for smoke to gather, making the firefight difficult.

The cause has not been determined, but the fire does not appear to have been intentionally set, according to investigators.
