LAS VEGAS – The Clark County Fire Department is currently investigating the cause of a fire that occurred near the University District and extended to the outside of portable buildings. The incident took place on Monday at approximately 2:20 p.m., following an initial report of a tree fire in the 2000 block of E. Viking Road, which is located near E. Flamingo Road and S.
