Settlement Hearing Scheduled For Accidental Fire Caused By Prescribed Burn

A settlement hearing is scheduled today for victims of the Little Valley Fire in the Washoe Valley, north of Carson City.

It’s been two and a half years since embers from a Nevada Division of Forestry prescribed burn triggered the wildfire which destroyed 23 homes.

The agency was found guilty of gross negligence by a Washoe County jury last August.
