Firefighters have contained a nearly 1,200 acre wildfire in the Sierra foothills above Carson City.

Officials say 70 homes and 35 businesses were threatened during the height of the fire along US Highway 50, but no structural damage was reported. About 150 high school juniors attending a Nevada Girls State conference at the Clear Creek Youth Center were evacuated and taken to the nearby old Stewart Indian School.
