LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Firefighters continued to battle a stubborn fire in a two-story storage facility on Durango Drive between Spring Mountain and Flamingo roads Thursday evening.

Durango remained completely closed to traffic at Twain Avenue.

The fire was reported around 10:43 p.m. on Wednesday in the 3800 block of Durango.

According to Clark County Deputy Fire Chief Warren Whitney, when the first unit arrived at the scene there was smoke and flames coming from the roof of the storage facility.

“A defensive fire attack strategy was initiated due to the advanced stage of the fire and the probability that it was in the attic extending laterally through the building,” he said.

Warren said most of the fire was knocked down but crews remain on the scene checking for interior spot fires in the building.

Clark County Fire Department and Las Vegas Fire and Rescue both responded to the fire. There are several retail businesses near the storage facility.

By Thursday morning high winds kicked up hot spots. Later in the afternoon fire crews continued to battle hotspots from the fire.

More than 70 fire crews from CCFD and LVFDR assisted when the call came in late Wednesday night.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation Thursday night.
