Squatters suspected in North Las Vegas animal clinic fire

Updated November 1, 2017 - 3:51 am

No one was injured after a Wednesday morning fire at an abandoned animal clinic in North Las Vegas.

Firefighters from the Las Vegas and North Las Vegas fire departments responded just after 1 a.m. to 2500 E. Lake Mead Blvd., near Civic Center Drive.

The fire was likely caused by squatters, according to the North Las Vegas Fire Department. This is the second time firefighters have fought a blaze at the building in the past few weeks.

The department said the building is no longer structurally sound and will likely be torn down as a safety precaution.

No injuries were reported, and the cost of damage has not yet been estimated.
