RENO, Nev. (AP) — Crews remain on the fire line on the edge of Reno where a wind-whipped wild land blaze had neighborhoods on edge over the weekend along the foothills of the eastern Sierra front.
Authorities estimate the fire has burned about 150 acres. It's only about 5 percent contained but firefighters say no homes or structures are threatened.
They plan to get back up in the air to get a better view and provide an update.
Forest Service officials said late Sunday the fire that broke out the night before was burning back into the Mount Rose Wilderness just west of Reno and north of Lake Tahoe.
Area trails were evacuated when the blaze quickly grew from about 10 acres to more than 100 in winds gusting in excess of 30 mph.
Investigators aren't sure how the fire started but it likely was human-caused because there was no lightning in the area.
