UPDATE 10PM: The Hunter Creek Fire is estimated to be around 250 acres with 35 percent containment, according to the Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District. Air drops will resume Friday morning. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Fire agencies from around the region including a brush engine from the Carson City Fire Department were called Thursday afternoon to assist with the Hunter Creek Fire in west Reno.
The fire was reported at 1:49 p.m. west of Caughlin Ranch and has grown to around 200 acres in size, being fueled by sage brush and grass, according to Truckee Meadows Fire. There are no homes in the area where the fire is burning and at this time no structures are threatened.
Truckee Meadows Fire and Reno Fire crews called for the unified command of multiple agencies and air resources including Washoe County's RAVEN, and helicopters from the U.S. Forest Service and Nevada Division of Forestry. Carson City Fire Department is sending brush unit 52, a 3-person team and Central Lyon County is also sending a brush unit.
Single lane closures will be in place on northbound Interstate 580 through Washoe Valley this Saturday and Sunday, June 24-25, as the Nevada Department of Transportation performs routine pavement monitoring and analysis.

After the walkoff victory, Jack Reinheimer reflected on the win, “It’s always awesome walking off like that, I think that’s one of the better feelings in this game.” He said, “Arcia put together a great at bat, lined it up to center and the ball just happened to go our way tonight. That’s an awesome feeling.”

Many students never make it to college because they can’t afford it. Western Nevada College is delighted to announce that it will participate in the state’s new Nevada Promise Scholarship program, so that young Nevadans can attend WNC starting with the fall 2018 semester, free of class fees.
Nevada Promise is a scholarship and mentoring program for Nevada high school graduates under 20 years of age. Through the Nevada Promise Scholarship, the state intends to pay the cost of attending classes at Nevada community colleges that is not otherwise funded by federal aid, the Millennium Scholarship or the Silver State Opportunity Grant.
“The Nevada Promise Scholarship clears the most common barriers to higher education for Nevada's recent high school graduates. It provides easy, flexible access to transfer degrees as well as career and technical programs for up to three years. Students pursuing a degree are funded to take 12 to 15 credits whether they attend in person at a WNC campus or online. It is clear evidence of the New Nevada's commitment to providing access to higher education and high level training for the future leaders in our state,” said Scott Morrison, WNC’s Vice President of Academic Affairs.
The scholarship stands to save Nevada families over $3000 per year. Students interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree can use the scholarship to complete their first two years at WNC before transferring to a university. They may also earn an associate degree and industry credentials in a variety of career and technical programs. If necessary, students may use the scholarship for remedial coursework, and students have the ability to renew their scholarship twice after the first year.
In addition to covered class fees, Nevada Promise students will be assigned a WNC mentor who will assist them with the scholarship requirements, as well as the admissions and financial aid processes. Completion of 20 hours of community service by April 30, 2018 is one of the scholarship’s requirements.
WNC’s Nevada Promise application opens Monday, June 26, 2017 for the fall 2018 launch. Students must apply for the scholarship no later than October 31, 2017. Students who are planning to attend WNC in 2018 are encouraged to apply for the scholarship early, as funding for Nevada Promise will be issued from the state on a first come, first serve basis.
For information about Nevada Promise at WNC, visit www.wnc.edu/promise/ or contact the counseling office at 445-3267.
The Nevada Promise Scholarship is a part the approved Senate Bill 391. The scholarship is funded by the State of Nevada.

• Must be younger than 20 years old and not previously have been awarded an associate or bachelor’s degree.
• Must be a bona fide resident of the state.
• Must have a high school diploma awarded by a public or private high school from Nevada or a public high school located in a county that borders this state that accepts pupils who are residents of this state, or a general equivalency diploma or equivalent document.
