Crews Snuff Out Wildfire North Of Pyramid Lake

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Firefighters have snuffed out a wildland blaze that burned about 100 acres of grass and sagebrush in a remote area north of Pyramid Lake.

Multiple crews from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management manned the fire overnight after it was reported at 2:45 p.m. Thursday about 60 miles north of Reno.

The Sierra Front Interagency Dispatch Center says it was caused by a contractor working in the area on the north end of the Pyramid Lake Indian Reservation near Round Hole Spring.
