LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — While the Clark County Fire Department was battling a two-alarm fire just blocks away, Las Vegas Fire & Rescue responded to a house fire Saturday afternoon.
It happened in the 2200 block of St. Louis Avenue, near Eastern Avenue.
Officials say heavy flames were seen coming through the roof of a two-story home. That fire then spread to the home next door.
Neighbors immediately reacted to what they saw.
“One of the houses was on fire and that triggered the second house to be on fire,” said neighbor, Shauny Andrews. “At the second house, the top story was in flames, but the bottom didn’t seem to be as engulfed. It’s still bad though,” she said.
The fire was put out just after 5 p.m.
Two people were treated at the scene for smoke inhalation, but they are okay. Ten people have been displaced as a result of the fire.
