Cooking fire at Golden Knights practice facility hurts 2

Updated March 23, 2019 - 7:53 pm

Two people were injured Saturday after a cooking fire in the kitchen of City National Arena in Summerlin, the Clark County Fire Department said.

Firefighters on the scene at the ice skating and hockey rink, at 1550 S. Pavilion Center Drive, confirmed that there was a fire in the kitchen. The fire had been put out by the building’s sprinklers before crews arrived, Assistant Fire Chief Larry Haydu said Saturday night.

Two people was injured during the fire, Haydu said.

One person was taken to a hospital with burns, and the second person was “treated and released,” he said.

The Fire Department had first reported that the fire was caused by a gas explosion, but that information was not correct, Haydu said in a later release.

Crews on the scene confirmed that the fire was “a cooking fire that was controlled by the building’s sprinkler system,” and the building’s gas supply was shut down as a precaution, he added.

Haydu said damage from the fire was minor, but crews are working to clean up some water damage caused by the sprinkler activation.

Building occupants are being allowed to re-enter the ground floor.

Further information was not available Saturday night.
