The Topaz Lodge and Casino on the Nevada-California line in southern Douglas County will be closed for an unknown length of time following a fire Tuesday night.
The fire broke out in the attic area and is tentatively attributed to an electrical short.
Several fire departments responded and had the fire under control about one hour after it was first reported. There were no injuries.
Rob Cashell, who owns the lodge with his father, Reno Mayor Bob Cashell, said the important thing is the casino was evacuated safely. He says he is confident the casino and restaurants will not be closed long.
