LAS VEGAS (KLAS)— The Clark County Fire Department recovered two bodies from inside an underground tunnel following a fire.

According to the CCFD, the fire was reported around 3:24 p.m. behind 8200 Dean Martin Drive near the Silverton casino. Firefighters were able to extinguish the flames but had difficulty accessing the entire tunnel due to how narrow it was.

Several hours after the fire had been put out, firefighters were able to complete a full search of the tunnel and they discovered the bodies of a man, woman, and multiple cats.

The cause of death for the man and woman will be determined by the Clark County Coroner’s Office. The cause of the fire is being investigated.
