LAS VEGAS -- A two-alarm house fire in the northwest valley left two people displaced, but caused no injuries.
The fire erupted shortly before 9:38 p.m. Wednesday at a home on Conquistador Street near Lone Mountain Road and the Bruce Woodbury Beltway. Las Vegas Fire and Rescue officials say flames first appeared from the home's attic area, but quickly spread to the roof.
Firefighters, at first, struggled to put out the blaze because of a lack of fire hydrants in the area, but crews brought the fire under control within an hour.
The people inside the home, a man and woman, say they were burning wood in their fireplace, when they noticed smoke entering the living room. The man inspected the attic and discovered the fire.
Neither the man nor woman suffered injuries. Fire investigators are determining the cause of the fire.
