This has been a very bad fire season in Reno. And it’s not even fire season.
In mid-November a fire whisked through a southwest Reno residential community and destroyed 32 homes. Yesterday a fire sparked in the southernmost area of Reno and engulfed 26 homes. The fires combined have caused 2 deaths.
Emergency crews and firefighters worked through the night, some working as many as 24 hours straight. As could only be expected, these disasters have saddened the community, but also give each of us an opportunity to reflect on what is really important, and a reminder to keep those important things (and ones) close to our hearts.
