Firesky takes new direction
Firesky Media Corp., a publicly traded California company that’s being reorganized under the direction of three Reno lawyers, said last week it will focus on real estate development in northern Nevada.
The company said it has identified several residential and commercial properties in the Reno area for possible purchase and development, and has acquired Magnetic Properties LLC, a real estate firm.
Firesky said it will continue to develop its data-mining and publishing businesses as well.
The company is headed by Reno attorney David Houston.
The introductory 80-hour program — announced in May as one solution to Nevada’s oft-lamented skilled labor shortages — is designed to train people in construction, building maintenance and related trades.
