Crews battle 2-alarm fire in east Las Vegas Valley

Crews battled a two-alarm fire Monday night at an apartment complex in the east Las Vegas Valley.

Firefighters were called just after 8 p.m. to the Quinn Apartments, 5500 Mountain Vista St., between East Hacienda Avenue and East Russell Road, according to a release from Clark County Fire Department Assistant Chief Dan Heenan.

Upon arrival, crews reported that they observed heavy flames from the vents below the attic of Building 15. Suppression operations were begun to put the fire out while additional crews began to evacuate the remainder of the building, the release said.

Personnel were able to suppress the fire found in an apartment and were looking for extension in the attic area, where they found smoke but no fire.

Around 8:25 pm, the suppression crews reported that there was a primary all clear in the building.

No injuries were reported, Heenan said. It is not known how many people will be displaced.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time, Heenan said.
