Guest house burns at northwest Las Vegas residence

Nevada News

Firefighters were battling a house fire in the northwest valley early Monday.

A fire in a guest house near North Campbell and West Lone Mountain roads was reported about 3:30 a.m. Monday, according to a tweet by the Las Vegas Fire Department.

A guest house was fully involved with flames when firefighters arrived, stated the tweet. Crews were unable to go inside, but had water on the fire.

Shortly before 4 a.m., a tweet said the fire was under control, but there was extensive damage to the residence.

No injuries were reported.

Fire Department Battalion Chief Mike Thom said there were no injuries.

“It was a building behind a house — a structure someone was living in,” Thom said. “Neighbors called it in and it was a fully involved house… . The occupant who was staying there was able to get out.”

Clark County fire investigators were responding to the scene because the property is in unincorporated Clark County.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
