An elderly man died after a Monday morning fire at central valley home, a city of Las Vegas spokesman said.
Although the Clark County coroner’s office didn’t name the deceased man, his niece identified him as David George. Consuelo McCuin in an e-mail said George was an ordained minister and World War II veteran who “built with his own hands” the one-story home that caught fire.
City of Las Vegas spokesman Jace Radke said Las Vegas firefighters responded about 10:20 a.m. to a home on the 300 block of West Van Buren Avenue., near C Street. Once inside the home, firefighters found George unconscious. He was transported to University Medical Center where he later died, Radke said.
Foul play isn’t suspected, he said.
Firefighters are investigating the cause of the blaze.
