The American Red Cross responded to help a family in Fernley after a house fire Thursday morning.
According to North Lyon County Fire Protection District public information office Jim Sullivan, the fire was a grease fire that was contained to the stove and kitchen.
Fire Chief Jason Nicholl advised residents not to use flour on a grease fire.
“Baking soda is good for grease fires, but not flour,” Nicholl said.
The Red Cross said it provided assistance for two adults and four children.
