Fire at local casino Sands couch caught fire authorities are investigating it  Fire at casino, fire department, news, and officers at the scene.

Here is a link to a local fire that happened in Reno, Nv at a casino Sands. 


The Reno Fire Department is investigating a fire that broke out early Thursday morning at The Sands on North Arlington Avenue. 


RFD got a call just after one a.m. Thursday morning to reports of an activated fire alarm at The Sands in Reno.


When fire crews showed up to the scene, they found smoke in the basement. When crews couldn't locate the initial source, they called for backup trucks.

 RFD says they found a chair on fire on the second floor. Officials say the sprinklers were activated in the room. Crews quickly put it out and downgraded their units.  

Crews on scene say nobody was evacuated or hurt and the only damage to the building is a "V-shape" singe on the wall as a result of the fire. 


Fire officials are still investigating what caused the initial spark. 

 What to do if there is a fire in your home

Everyone in your home needs to know what to do when a fire occurs.

  • try not to panic
  • tell everyone in the house
  • use your pre-planned escape route to get everyone out of the building as quickly as possible
  • smoke rises, so stay low or crawl on the floor in the cleaner air where it's easier to breathe
  • do not stop to collect any valuables or possessions
  • do not stop to look for pets
  • if possible, close the door to the room where the fire is located and close all doors behind you as you leave (to delay the spread of fire and smoke)
  • before opening a closed door, touch it with the back of your hand; do not open it if it feels warm - the fire will be on the other side 

Do Not GO back into the building

  • find somewhere safe near the building and wait for the fire service to arrive
  • if someone is still inside the building, tell the fire service and give details
  • by going back into the building, you'll prevent the fire service from doing what they need to do and put your own life at risk too
