Crews responded to a small fire that sparked inside an unoccupied room at the South Point Hotel Casino on Friday.

The Clark County Fire Department was dispatched around 5:25 a.m. for a fire signal activation at the casino-hotel on S. Las Vegas Boulevard, Deputy Chief Thomas Touchstone said in an email.

Firefighters arrived and learned from security officers that there was smoke on the third floor, the entirety of which is unoccupied, Touchstone said.

They searched the floor and found some light smoke in the third floor’s stairwell and hallway, he said. They located a small fire in one of the rooms, with the sprinkler system already putting most of it out.

There was some moderate damage to the room, according to Touchstone. No injuries were reported, and CCFD crews remained on scene to remove smoke from the building.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
