Five Las Vegas Locals Displaced Due to Apartment Fire

February 05, 2018
House an residential fires seem to be an especially frequent occurrence in Las Vegas. There is almost a new report by a local news outlet in Southern Nevada discussing the particular details of yet another Clark County residential or casino fire every week, and it's downright alarming. Sometime the apartment fire and explosions happen in Henderson, a township that's directly adjacent to Las Vegas that is to many residents in the area. Sometimes the reports are of a Las Vegas Strip casino fire that endangers local residents and visiting tourists alike. Or, perhaps the report will be details of major property damage incurred at a large Summerlin home that's damaged by smoke and fire.

Just a couple of days ago, on a sleepy Sunday early morning in Las Vegas, yet another Clark County apartment fire broke out. The time of the Las Vegas residential fire resulting in injuries and property damage was just before 5 in the morning. The first emergency staff to show up to help out were the fine folks from Las Vegas Fire and Rescue, and they arrived at the home fire around 5:01 in the morning. When first responders, most likely firefighters from Las Vegas Fire and Rescue got to the residence, they found thick black smoke billowing out of a single-story home that had been clearly broken into two apartments.  The apartment fire in Southern Nevada was on the 1900 block of D Street, close to the downtown district of old Las Vegas. Between the two apartments, there were five residents in total who were displaced by the house fire. By the time the firefighters with the Las Vegas Fire and Rescue department arrived at the scene, all of the residents of the two apartments had left. One Las Vegas local man had to be rushed to University Medical Center to be treated for injuries related to exposure and inhalation of smoke. The other Southern Nevada residents that were connected to this residential fire were only impacted by minor injuries. Right now, the estimated costs to fix all of the property damage caused by the fire is hovering around twenty-five thousand dollars. The cause of this Las Vegas apartment fire resulting in injuries is still under heavy investigation by Las Vegas Fire and Rescue and other authorities, as they have informed the press that the usual cause for a fire like this, something to do with an electrical fire, can't possibly be the cause of this incident. This home, unfortunately, did not have a hookup to electricity at the time of the fire.
