SPARKS, Nev. (775 Times, NV Globe) – In Sparks, a home fire is being investigated. The fire started about 11:50 p.m. Wednesday, December 14th, in the 100 block of East I Street.
The incident was reported by a bystander who stated the whole house was engulfed in flames, according to Sparks fire chief Derek Keller. Within 5 minutes, five engines and 21 workers arrived at the home to discover just the adjoining side-garage completely burned.
