Thanks… I was just looking that up. A couple of engines from our local FD just responded to the incident (they called it the Arrow Creek Fire… local naming based on the subdivision?).

Based on the timelapse from this cam there are multiple structures involved. Outflow driven extreme fire behavior.

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - A fire is threatening the Galena area of South Reno.

The Rock Farm Fire first broke out on BLM Land. North Tahoe Fire has sent a strike team to the area to assist.

The area is just north of the Mount Rose Highway.

Good column when we pulled into town. There’s been a lot of thunderstorm activity in the last 15 minutes. Here a picture from the Truckee River in downtown Reno.

914 was in the air, heading for the Hog when the airshow there was shut down due to the weather. Looks like T944 is also turning towards this fire.
