The Caughlin Fire quickly burned through southwest Reno’s Horseman’s Canyon destroying five homes and damaging another four. Just to the west of Horseman’s Canyon is Rosewood Canyon, which in terms of vegetation and density of homes, looks very similar to Horseman’s Canyon. Fortunately, for residents living adjacent to Rosewood Canyon, the Caughlin Fire passed them by. However, the threat of wildfire and the potential for loss of life and property has motivated Rosewood Canyon residents to take action  before the next wildfire starts.

The Caughlin Fire burned through Horseman's Canyon, skipping Rosewood Canyon immediately to the west.

This Thursday, April 26, an informational presentation will be held for everyone living near Rosewood Canyon to discuss the threat a wildfire in Rosewood Canyon would pose to neighboring families and homes and how to best address that threat. Please see the flyer below for more details about the event.
