Henderson, Nev. – An overnight fire that started in a bedroom damaged a Henderson condominium and displaced three adults.

The Henderson Fire Department responded at about 10:40 p.m. on June 28 to a multifamily residential structure fire in the 1000 block of Bass Drive, near Sunset Road and Sandhill Road.

The first arriving engine crew observed smoke coming from a ground floor unit in a two-story, four-unit condominium building. Firefighters quickly initiated an offensive attack and entered the unit to extinguish the fire. There was no fire extension to neighboring units.

Henderson Police helped evacuate building occupants prior to Henderson Fire’s arrival. An adult male was treated at the scene for injuries but declined to be transported to the hospital. There were no other injuries to residents or firefighters.

Three adults were displaced by the fire and are being assisted by the American Red Cross.

Five engines, one truck, two rescue units and an air resource apparatus responded to the fire.

A City of Henderson Senior Fire Investigator, Henderson Police, Southwest Gas Corp. and NV Energy responded to help secure the property.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The total estimated loss is $55,000.
