The Pinehaven Fire forced evacuations in Reno, Nevada, on November 17, with local news reporting five structures destroyed and 15 more damaged.
Footage posted to Instagram by @kathryngoetzke shows smoke and a string of flames lining hilltops.
“Unreal,” wrote @kathryngoetzke. “We were safely evacuated over an hour ago, where I took the initial photos. The video is from across the way, now, looking at how quickly and broadly it spread. Never underestimate the intensity and power of fire.”
As of the afternoon of November 18, according to the City of Reno, the fire was five percent contained. Credit: @kathryngoetzke via Storyful
