LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Six people and one dog are temporarily without a home after their house in northwest Las Vegas caught fire on Wednesday, firefighters say.

Las Vegas Fire and Rescue responded to the fire on Taylor Creek Avenue, near Ann Road and Rainbow Boulevard, shortly before 3:30 p.m.

There were no injuries.

Authorities estimated damage at $50,000.

Three adults, three children and one small dog are receiving assistance from the American Red Cross.
