LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Firefighters are battling a blaze at the boarded-up clubhouse at the Silverstone golf course in the north valley.
Las Vegas Fire & Rescue crews responded to a call just before 12:30 p.m. The site is at 8600 Cupp Drive, inside the gated Silverstone community. It is just east of Floyd Lamb State Park.
They arrived to find heavy fire showing on the structure.
The clubhouse and the golf course were shut down in the summer of 2015. A bitter fight followed, with homeowners in a golf course community left with a course that eventually died, turning brown when it wasn’t irrigated.
Reports in June of last year indicated the owner of the course was proposing to put in a 27 hole course, but that never panned out.
Sasha Loftis was on the scene at the closed Silverstone Golf Course.
John Ryan, a Silverstone homeowner who spoke to us in 2016, said he once was a regular at the clubhouse.
“It used to be a very nice place to have breakfast on Sunday morning,” Ryan said.
Local resident Heather R. sent the above video of what she saw near the scene of the fire.
