The Poeville Fire

The Poeville Fire on Peavine Mountain in and near Reno, Nevada.

The rapid movement of the fire to the foothills of Reno prompted evacuations in Golden Valley, Stead, and North Reno near Rancho San Rafael Park. High winds powered the fire and created containment issues for firefighters early on.  The fire perimeter was mapped at 3,010 acres and was contained to 95% by July 1, 2020.
