Reno fire prompts emergency declaration

11.18.11 07:00 PM

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 18 (UPI) -- A wild fire destroyed nearly two dozen homes and forced thousands of people in Reno, Nev., to flee the approaching flames, authorities said Friday.

Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval declared a state of emergency as the wind-whipped Caughlin Ranch fire reached 400 acres, KWU-TV, Las Vegas reported. Winds were 20-35 mph with guts in the 65-80 mph range.

NBC News said one person died of a heart attack in the fire zone.

"It's tough man, it's tough," Reno Fire Chief Michael Hernandez told the Reno Gazette-Journal. "The winds are not helping us at all."

The newspaper reported up to 9,000 people had been advised to evacuate.

Reno's KRNV reported firefighters hadn't determined what caused the wildfire.
