Crews fighting two-alarm fire at construction site in west Las Vegas Valley

No one was injured when an under-construction apartment complex caught fire in the west valley late Friday, shooting up large flames visible to passing drivers on the 215 Beltway.

The fire started about 8:20 p.m. at the 4280 S. Hualapai Way complex, just south of Flamingo Road, Deputy Chief Kelly Blackmon with the Clark County Fire Department said.

The blaze swallowed four separate apartment buildings, which each contained eight under-construction apartments. Of the four buildings, one was destroyed, two were heavily damaged and the fourth sustained minor damage.

As of 10 p.m., crews were still putting out hot spots and monitoring affected buildings for possible flare-ups. Crews will be on the scene for a while, Blackmon said.
