LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Fire heavily damaged a northwest Las Vegas home Thursday morning, Oct. 1. Two people were inside the house when it caught fire, unaware that the outside was heavily on fire.
According to the report from Las Vegas Fire and Rescue, someone banged on the front door to alert them the home was on fire. The two people escaped without injury.
The American Red Cross is assisting one person that is displaced.
