Notorious Brothel Owner’s Home Among 19 Burned In Nevada Wildfire

RENO, Nev. (CBS13/AP) – One of the 19 homes destroyed in a wildfire in northern Nevada belonged to brothel owner Dennis Hof.

Hof told the Reno Gazette-Journal he wasn’t there at the time but neighbors phoned to tell him his house was burning in the forest south of Reno. He posted photos of it reduced to rubble on his Twitter account Friday afternoon.

Hof owns the Moonlite Bunny Ranch brothel east of Carson City. He’s running for the state Assembly as a Libertarian in the November election.

Dozens of other homes remain threatened by the fire. Rain hitting the area has helped in the firefight, crews say.
