Fernley fire keeps crews busy

Fire crews were responding to a brush fire in the Fernley area. It was burning a couple of miles east of the city yesterday. It was a ten-acre brush fire. Authorities initially got a call about a car fire, and the car was fully engulfed in flames when crews got there, then the fire spread to federal land. No structures were threatened and no injuries have been reported. Firefighters couldn’t reach the fire, so they were letting it burn out.
