LAS VEGAS – A fire at a southwest Las Vegas apartment complex Sunday evening displaced nine people.
According to Clark County Fire Department Deputy Fire Chief Warren Whitney, smoke began to fill an apartment at 8985 S. Durango Drive around 6:38 p.m. Sunday.
The cause of the incident was determined to be an electrical short within a wall, and the statement stated that the structure had a history of fires in a wall.
There were no injuries, and the fire did not spread to adjacent apartments.
Whitney calculated that the damage would cost around $300,000.
