LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A fire at an abandoned retail store became double trouble when it flared up a few hours after firefighters initially battled the blaze Wednesday morning.

Las Vegas Fire & Rescue crews responded to Charleston and Decatur boulevards when the initial fire was reported around 5:30 a.m. The westbound lanes of Charleston were closed to traffic while crews fought the fire. The road reopened around 7:30 a.m.

Around 8:30 a.m., the fire flared back up and had to be put out a second time, Battalion Chief Joseph Digaetano said.

“There is a risk it could reignite that’s why we will continue fire-watch for the next few days,” he added. 

The fire was in a building that’s been abandoned for around two years. Digaetano said there were no victims or injuries and the fire was put out a second time around 10:30 a.m.

The building is considered a total loss. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
