Apartment fire causes $150,000 in damage

A Wednesday afternoon fire ripped through a northwest valley apartment complex, displacing two people and causing $150,000 in damage.

The 3 p.m. fire started in a downstairs unit at the Camden Bel Air apartments, 7075 Gowan Road, near U.S. Highway 95, the Las Vegas Fire Department said.

The fire went up through a wall to the attic area, but firefighters prevented it from spreading through the entire building. A vacant upstairs apartment and the downstairs unit had fire damage.

One firefighter was slightly injured but did not require hospitalization, the department said.
