RENO, Nev. (AP) - A Reno apartment fire on Thursday night critically injured two men and injured a woman.

Fire officials say both men suffered third-degree burns to 90 percent of their bodies and were in critical condition at a hospital.

The woman remains at Renown Regional Medical Center after suffering first- and second-degree burns and significant smoke inhalation.

Their names were not immediately released.

Investigators say the fire in the center unit of a large two-story apartment complex on Manhattan Street is believed to have originated in the garage while the occupants were repairing a vehicle.

They say while the cause remains under investigation, gasoline may have contributed to the start of the blaze.

It took firefighters 10 minutes to control the 9:35 p.m. fire.
