Vacant House Damaged By Fire

 

Las Vegas firefighters responded to a vacant house fire early Sunday morning on the city’s eastside. The cause of the fire is under investigation. There were no reported injuries.

Fire dispatchers received a call at 3:37 a.m. that a single family house at 633 N. 22nd St. (Bonanza/Eastern) was on fire. When firefighters arrived, heavy flames and smoke were showing from a one-story/wood frame house. Most of the fire was on the outside of the house under a carport, but the fire had worked its way into the house through a window. Firefighters brought the fire under control in less than ten minutes.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. The house is vacant, but it appears the house is being renovated and utilities were connected to the house.

Since the house is vacant, there were no displaced people and there were no reported injuries.
            
Damage to the house was estimated at $45,000.
