World War II Flare Gun Sparks House Fire in Nevada





Investigators say the accidental discharge of a World War II-era flare gun ignited a fire that heavily damaged a home in Reno.

A man who lived in the house was inspecting the flare gun when it went off just before 11 a.m. on Monday.

Reno fire spokesman Steve Frady says the man and a woman who also lived there escaped with a pet cat unharmed.
