Reno, Nev. (AP) - Officials are investigating the cause of a fire that started in a hotel room at the Ponderosa Hotel in Reno’s Midtown district.

No one was injured.

Fire crews responded to a call reporting the fire just after 8:00 p.m.

As of late Tuesday night, the cause of the fire was still unknown.
