An early morning fire in Southwest Reno has consumed some 400 acres. The fire is in the Caughlin Ranch area off South McCrarran Blvd. near Skyline Blvd. and Lakeside Drive. The fire is still burning out of control, hampered by very high winds in the area.
Most Washoe County Schools (except in the Incline area) have been closed. Two evacuation centers have been set up at local Reno High Schools.
