    A wind-driven, 3,400-acre wildfire raging in western Nevada has destroyed 22 properties and is still threatening about 500 others, NBC News reported.

    Almost 900 firefighters have been tackling the Little Valley Fire, between Reno and Carson City, which authorities said was only 20 percent contained by Saturday night.

    Residents east of Washoe Lake have been allowed to return home. Other neighborhoods have been permitted but told they might have to evacuate again Sunday.

    "It's absolutely devastating," Dennis Hof, owner of the state's famous Bunny Ranch brothel, who said there was "nothing left" of his home.

    "The only thing you see is the foundation and a washer and dryer than didn't burn up. That's it," he told the station.
