(AP) -- A wildfire burning in the mountain wilderness above Reno for nearly a week is all but out. 

Sierra Front incident commander Nate Rasner says the Hunter Falls Fire is 95 percent contained and should be fully contained by Friday.

The fire burned about a square mile of timber and brush. 

Nearly 200 crew members remain on the scene but mostly in mop-up mode.
