LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A man who was rescued from a fire in a vacant building last week has died making it one of the most deadly weeks in the Las Vegas Fire Department’s history.
The man was pulled — by a passerby — from a burning vacant building near Sahara Avenue and 6th Street on Monday, Oct. 7. He suffered critical burns.
Firefighters say squatters were staying in the building at the time of the fire.
Also, last week a mother and her 6-year-old son died in a house fire.
