Investigators determined the Moapa fire was sparked July 1 while workers hired by the Southern Nevada Water Authority were trimming palm trees and clearing brush.

Officials say 10 homes and five other buildings were destroyed as flames spread over almost a square mile of land including the Mormon church’s 75-acre Warm Springs Ranch.
