Walton's Funerals and Cremations held a grand re-opening for its Sparks chapel and events center after a fire destroyed the building back in 2016.

Gov. Brian Sandoval was on hand to celebrate the opening of the facility on Sullivan Lane Thursday, Nov. 30.

The Nevada Army National Guard held a flag raising ceremony, and Father Norman King provided a blessing.

Crews battled a fire that sparked in the building in September last year. No serious injuries were reported, but the building was considered a total loss.
