LAS VEGAS - An overnight house fire west of 215 Beltway and Sunset Road has displaced one local family.
Clark County Fire Department officials say the fire started shortly after 1 a.m. in the garage of a home on Willowbrook Pond Road.
Fire officials say the fire engulfed a vehicle and spread to the attic and roof area of the home before firefighters extinguished it.
No one suffered any injuries, but the fire claimed the life of a family pet and displaced the home's residents.
The blaze caused approximately $250,000 damage. Its cause is under investigation. The Red Cross of Southern Nevada is assisting the displaced family.
Some medical providers say they often deal with Hispanic patients who are afraid to seek medical care. It's hoped the opening of a new medical clinic will change that.
