The North Lyon County Fire Protection District is warning businesses and residents of a scam in which callers are asking for donations for a fire magnet campaign.
This morning, a local Fernley business called the District asking if North Lyon County Fire Protection District would be handing out magnets. The person said a caller had asked for donations for a Fire Magnets Campaign, and said the fire District would be handing out the magnets.
“It is not true that this District is participating in a Fire Magnets Campaign, and those who receive such calls should call the Sheriff’s Office,” District Fire Chief Scott Huntley said.
