Firefighters responded just before midnight Saturday to a two-alarm fire at Lee’s Korean BBQ near Spring Mountain Road and South Rainbow Boulevard.
The restaurant at 6820 Spring Mountain Rd. was “heavily involved in fire” and had vented through the roof when the Las Vegas and Clark County fire departments arrived at the strip mall, according to Clark County Battalion Chief John Steinbeck.
Fire crews aggressively extinguished the flames, Steinbeck said, saving both businesses adjacent to the restaurant.
The fire caused an estimated $70,000 in damage. No injuries were reported.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
