LEMMON VALLEY, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- A wind-fueled fire in Lemmon Valley caused some damage to nearby sheds on Tuesday.

According to Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District, the fire began just after 2 p.m. on Fremont Way. The blaze started on a fence between two houses, but was quickly put out by firefighters.

Fire officials said with conditions like this, anything can happen. "A warm day like this, the humidity relatively low, it's real easy for a fire like this to get out of control," said Battalion Chief Mike Heikka. "The guys did a great job. They got in there and contained it to just one property."

Officials on scene say no one was hurt in the fire.
