House Fire in Mason, Nevada Displaces Family on Sunday, August 20th, 2023

Mason Valley, Nevada, August 20, 2023

From Yerington/Mason Valley Fire Protection District: Here are, “Photos from a structure fire in Mason Nevada today. Minor injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation by the Nevada State Fire Marshalls Office. We were assisted by Smith Valley Fire Protection District – NV who sent an engine and medic unit. NV Energy responded to disconnect the power to the structure.”

“Our friends from Smith Valley Fire Protection District – NV responded to assist us on this fire and sent an ambulance and engine. NV Energy responded and disconnected power to the house while initial attack was underway. The floor inside the structure started to fail, and the incident commander pulled out the interior attack teams. At this point we converted from offensive to defensive operations, fighting the fire from outside only.”

“One family was displaced, and the American Red Cross of Nevada was called to assist with accommodations for the displaced occupants.”

“The Nevada State Police – Fire Marshal’s Office was called in to investigate the cause of the fire.

We are a volunteer fire department and we are always looking for new members! Stop by the station and introduce yourself today and we will tell you all about joining our organization: 118 S. Main Street in Yerington.”
