A wildfire broke out earlier this week in Reno, Nevada, prompting the governor to issue a state of emergency and evacuate nearly 10,000 people from their homes.
Many residents have since returned, but officials are continuing to battle the blaze - which has devoured an estimated 2,000 acres of land.
The fire began early Thursday morning. The flames have burned through nearly three dozen homes, but by Sunday afternoon officials had managed to contain most of the fire - sparing an additional 4,000 residential properties from damage.
Intermittent snow - which began falling over the area Sunday morning - is further helping the situation.
The wildfire is thought to have been caused by a downed power line.
One death has been linked to the wildfire. On Saturday, a firefighter was taken to the hospital with second-degree burns.
