Two people were injured in a fire Wednesday morning in the southeast valley, the Clark County Fire Department said.

About 9:40 a.m., firefighters responded to reports of a fire at 5600 Boulder Highway, near East Tropicana Avenue, Fire Department spokesman Jon Klassen said. A utility truck was found fully engulfed in flames and appeared to be loaded with roofing materials and supplies.

Flames from the utility truck had spread into the third story of a nearby building, Klassen said. Two people inside were rescued and taken to local hospitals with injuries considered not life-threatening.

Damages have not been estimated, according to the Fire Department. The fire remains under investigation.
