SPARKS, NV (KOLO) -- The Sparks Fire Department responded to a report of a dumpster fire threatening a structure in the 1400 block of Scheels Drive in Sparks Tuesday, according to Fire Battalion Chief Derek Keller. Investigators say arson is suspected.

Fire crews quickly arrived and knocked the flames down with water.

The area of the fire is reported to be behind the Forever 21 store. Fire crews found exterior damage to a building. It was thought the flames compromised the structure of a nearby building, but it has since been deemed safe.
