RENO, Nev. — A fast-moving wildfire driven by strong winds destroyed or damaged about 20 homes in a Reno neighborhood and forced the evacuation of hundreds more on the edge of the Sierra Nevada foothills, authorities said Wednesday. It was one of several blazes burning near the Nevada-California border.
Preliminary information indicated that five homes were destroyed and that 15 were damaged in the fire that started Tuesday, said Battalion Chief Mark Winkelman of the Reno Fire Department.
