Fire chief: Reno wildfire contained

Firefighters in Nevada have fully contained a wildfire that engulfed dozens of homes and burned nearly 2,000 acres, an incident commander said Monday.

The Caughlin Fire in Reno burned 1,935 acres before firefighters contained the blaze, said Sierra Fire Protection District Chief Mike Brown, the incident commander.

The blaze has made 32 homes uninhabitable and damaged five, but is no longer a major threat to other structures, Reno Fire Chief Michael Hernandez said Sunday.

    The right wing thugs in Washington started this fire, and it is because all of you went to Nevada and paid the right wing thugs in Washington billions of dollars by gambling.

    I really hope that was a joke, GP, because that's the stupidest thing I have ever heard, and that's a tough one to call: you've said many stupid things.

    I hope this is a troll trolling a troll.

      Wow, there are so many! I love fresh herbs, such as parsley, cratnlio, basil.. they add so much taste and nutrients. Another is avocado.. I like avocado with almost anything! And pomegranades.. I'd probably put them on the top of my list!
