Shed Fire Under Investigation

 

Las Vegas Fire Investigators are looking into the cause of a shed fire in the 6600 block of Delphinium Ave. at 12:45 a.m. this morning.  Firefighters arrived on scene and quickly put the fire out before it was able to extend to some nearby mobile homes and vehicles. The cause of the fire is under investigation. 

Just after the fire was put out, fire dispatchers received a 9-1-1 call for a person burned on the hands at  another location nearby.  That person was transported to the UMC Burn Unit with serious burns to the hands.

Fire investigators were looking to see if the two incidents were related.
