Reno Wildfire

Just in case anyone reading this was wondering, the Reno Wildfire that has made national news is nowhere near us. Fernley is about 30 miles east of Reno/Sparks, on the other side of a range of hills, while this fire is in southwestern Reno (see map on City of Reno's website.) As a reference point for those of you who attended Renovation, the complex of buildings in the upper right of the perimeter map (warning: large PDF, subject to change, may not be the same as when I looked at it) is the Peppermill Hotel complex, which means the fire's perimeter is (as of the time I checked) only about two miles from the Peppermill and Atlantis/Convention Center area.
