I want to say thanks to Sparks and Reno Fire for responding so quickly to put out the abandoned gym fire. It could have been worse due to it being so close to cheat grass field and the trees near the river. Here is the story:
Crews with the Reno Fire Department are mopping up an early morning structure fire at a vacant building on E. McCarran Blvd. between Mill and Greg streets. A spokesperson confirms the structure fire partially collapsed the old Bishop Manogue High School gym on Mill Street.
The building was abandoned and no injuries are reported.
Authorities say a fire investigator will remain on scene for several hours to determine the cause of the blaze.
Thanks again to our local fire departments. Keep up the great work and we will do our side of the clean up when we are needed.
