A North Las Vegas apartment building was destroyed Sunday afternoon in a blaze that burned for more than two hours.
The fire was reported about 2:20 p.m. at a fourplex at 3005 Saint George St., near Cheyenne Avenue and Civic Center Drive, according to North Las Vegas Fire Chief Cedric Williams.
Crews arriving at the scene found heavy smoke and flames showing from one of the apartments, Williams said. It took 35 firefighters about two and a half hours to put out the fire.
No injuries were reported, but seven people were displaced. The apartment building was severely damaged and is a “complete loss,” Williams said.
