1:05pm Carson City Firefighters rushed to the scene of an apartment fire at 1600 Airport Road. An apartment there was filling with smoke due to an overheated air-conditioner.

Lesson: When your air conditioner is on…pay close to it. Visit it up close several times a day…especially in these hot, hot, hot summer days.
