A massive inferno burning across the mountains of northwest Nevada has evacuated thousands from the area to residents horror as firefighters fight for the many homes and potential lives swept up in the blaze.

Police in Reno went house to house in the middle of the night, pounding on doors and telling residents they had to evacuate as a roughly 400-acre blaze raged in rough terrain, destroyed homes and injured some people.
One man suffered a fatal cardiac arrest while evacuating.

Must be awful to lose everything and be powerles to prevent it. Only positive thing is that only one person died. Not great thing to happen for Thanksgiving.
