Three people were displaced in a fire in Henderson late Sunday night.

The fire was near Lake Mead Parkway and Pawnee Lane, which is near East Warm Springs Road.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.

The Red Cross is assisting those displaced.

The Henderson blaze was one of seven fires since Saturday, many of them believed to be caused by squatters.

Around 3 p.m. Sunday, firefighters responded to a small fire at a vacant home near Washington Avenue and Rainbow Boulevard.

The fire was out when they go there but they found a stolen vehicle outside the house.

There was a fire on Lucy Thompson Street, near Jones Boulevard and U.S. 95, around 5:20 p.m. Sunday. A teen was home when the fire started but was able to escape.
