Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A 200-yard-long by 20-yard wide fire at Lake Las Vegas late Wednesday night put on quite a display but didn’t do any significant damage.

Henderson officials said the fire burned trash at a construction site on private property, but never threatened any structures.

The fire department is continuing to monitor the site as it continues to smolder in a remote part of the desert, officials said.

Sonia Miller, a resident who saw the fire and provided video to 8NewsNow, said it was burning just before midnight at the edge of the Del Webb development.

“I saw a huge flash of light literally through my closed eyelids,” she said. She said she also heard a “huge bang.”

Henderson Fire Department Station 86 responded, and a decision was made to let the isolated fire burn itself out. There was no wind blowing to spread the fire.

The cause of the fire is undetermined at this time.
