LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A 19-year-old woman was arrested and charged with arson Monday following a fire that destroyed a mobile home in the east valley.

Alexis Bounds is being held at the Clark County Detention Center after the Monday morning blaze at El Adobe Mobile Home Estates, 825 N. Lamb Blvd.

No one was injured in the fire, which caused an estimated $50,000, according to Las Vegas Fire & Rescue investigators. The fire was confined to the mobile home.

Three adults lived in the mobile home, according to a Las Vegas Fire & Rescue news release. The American Red Cross was contacted to see if the other two occupants needed assistance.

Las Vegas firefighters, assisted by crews from Clark County and North Las Vegas, put out the blaze after flames engulfed the mobile home just after 7:30 a.m.

When firefighters arrived, heavy flames and smoke were showing from the home. It took firefighters only a few minutes to bring the blaze under control.

The incident remains under investigation.
