LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Neighbors in the southwest part of Las Vegas are fed up over the wild scenes playing out in their area which have included flame throwers, rocket launchers, strippers and buses full of people as the Strip's night and day clubs remain closed.

Neighbors near Sunset Road and Jones Boulevard say they are living next to a nightmare.

"It's a party going madhouse out here," said Tony Grant.

Online, the venue is billed as a day and nightclub available for gatherings and parties.

"There's fire-based entertainment, including flamethrowers, and rocket launchers that are being set off within obviously 10-to-15 feet of 50-foot pine trees and homes," explained Hadas Grant.

Online records show Las Vegas police have taken more than a half dozen reports for "disturbing the peace" in the 5800 block of Patrick Lane since April 2020.

Records obtained by Clark County show authorities have placed administrative actions on the home and fines have totaled $350.

The Grants say the gatherings have continued.

"On the day the citation was placed on the door, that Tuesday night was one of the largest gatherings or events that they've ever had, they're laughing in the face of code enforcement," explained Tony Grant.

13 Investigates attempted to contact the group that is promoting the gatherings at the home but a request was not acknowledged.

13 Investigates has learned the home, and the California-based owner, are all over the county's radar with an active investigation, according to authorities.

"The girls that we see walking in and out, a lot of them are dressed in a G string and a top," said Nanette Grant.

The Grants are fed up and fear it may only be a matter of time before one of the parties get really out of control and someone gets hurt.
