A fire at a North Las Vegas industrial complex Wednesday forced the evacuation of about 100 employees.
The call came in just after 4:30 p.m. to Brady Linen Services, 1 W. Mayflower Ave., northwest of North 5th Street and Losee Road, according to North Las Vegas Fire Department spokesman Nino Galloway.
A second alarm was called so firefighters could investigate the 106,000-square-footp building and ensure that all employees were accounted for, Galloway said.
No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
