Las Vegas, NV – Sprinkler system assisted firefighters in extinguishing fire in commercial building

Sprinklers and Clark County firefighters extinguished a fire in a commercial building several blocks west of the Strip on Sunday morning.

Just before 8 a.m., the Clark County Fire Department responded to a report of fire alarms going off in a commercial building at 4375 W. Reno Ave., just south of West Tropicana Avenue and South Arville Street.

Arriving crews found a single story commercial structure with smoke coming from the roof vents and doors. Because of the size of the building, firefighters called for additional resources, according to a news release.

Crews had to fight moderate heat and near zero visibility which hampered their efforts to locate what was burning.

Other fire crews were assigned to open the large doors on the rear of the building in order to improve visibility and provide a secondary means of escape should the firefighters on the inside need to get out.

A sprinkler system prevented the fire from consuming the entire structure.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Clark County Fire Department’s fire investigation division. Damage estimates are not yet available.

The owners of the business arrived on-scene while fire crews were still operating.

There were no injuries.
