A fire broke out at a rambling upscale home near the end of Hells Bells Road Tuesday morning. Firefighters arrived to see flames shooting high over the garage. A fast attack knocked the flames down before they spread to the rest of the home. The garage was heavily damaged as well as to a vehicle parked inside. A small travel trailer parked about twenty feet away was singed by the heat.
Firefighters knocked down the garage fire then concentrated on checking to see if the fire had spread to the main living quarters of the house. They opened two small sections of the roof and began checking for any fire extension.
The exact cause of the fire has not yet been released. There were no injuries to firefighters or the home’s occupants.

Carson City – Earlier this morning Sunrise Movement Reno Hub, along with two Northern Nevada community leaders, endorsed Patricia Ackerman for Nevada Congressional District 2.
Sunrise Movement Reno stated: “The Reno Sunrise Hub proudly endorses Patricia Ackerman for Congress in Nevada’s second district. We look forward to a fossil free future with your help!”
Patrick Donnelly, Nevada State Director for Center for Biological Diversity Action Fund, tweeted
: “Patricia Ackerman for Congress is endorsed by Center for Biological Diversity Action Fund and now Sunrise Movement Reno Hub. If bold, rapid action to pursue climate justice is your priority as a voter, then the choice is clear in the NV-02 Democratic primary.”
Patricia Ackerman has made climate change and protecting public lands a centerpiece of her candidacy. As a former high-altitude mountaineer herself who moved to Minden to be closer to the mountains, protecting public lands is of special importance to Ackerman.
“We need a CD2 representative with the perspective of rural Nevada,” Judd said. “Her unique experiences feed her passion for solutions to healthcare and education access statewide.”

Attorney General Ford Issues Statement on Officer Shootings
During Local Protests
Las Vegas – Today, Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford issued the following statement on the recent officer-involved shootings that took place during local protests in the Las Vegas valley:
“Today I was heartbroken to hear of two officer involved shootings that took place last night in the Las Vegas valley. According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, one officer is in critical condition and the investigation remains ongoing. My family is praying for the families of those who were killed and for the recovery of those injured.
Across Nevada and this nation, people are scared, angry and in pain. Racial injustice has been part of this country’s history since before America was founded continues to this present day. But this country will not absolve its violent history with a violent future. Americans have made great strides towards equality because passionate people took the heat of their anger and used it to forge real change. Thousands of Nevadans have peacefully protested against racial injustice and I encourage those peaceful demonstrations and taking constructive action. Donate to a cause, volunteer with an organization you believe in, and participate in our elections. You may feel helpless right now, but in reality, you have the power here to drive the change we are all seeking for a more equal and just country. “
More information about the shootings and the ongoing investigation can be found on the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s website.
