ORIGINAL STORY

LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- Around 3:30 p.m. Saturday, the Clark County Fire Department responded to an apartment fire at 1750 Karen Avenue.

Crews spotted heavy flames coming from a ground floor apartment and called in a second alarm from Las Vegas Fire and Rescue.

The structure became unstable, and firefighters were ordered out of the building. Once the flames were under control, crews went back inside to put out the rest of the fire. At least seven units were burned.

No injuries were reported. One dog suffered smoke inhalation, but has since recovered and has been returned to its owner.

The American Red Cross is assisting 30 people displaced by the fire.
