RENO — Fire crews contained a small brush fire in northwest Reno.
Authorities say the fire burned about 5 acres (2 hectares) last Tuesday before crews stopped the progress at the former Northgate Golf Course east of the Somersett development.
There’ve been no reports of any injuries or structure damage since the flames were first reported at about noon.
Investigators told KOLO-TV the fire apparently was started by members of a work crew who were using a grinder on a gate and called 911 when they couldn’t extinguish the flames in windy conditions.
It prompted the nearby Reno Nevada Temple to close on Beaumont Parkway the rest of the day.
