Las Vegas Fire and Rescue is reporting a fire at a two-story apartment building, which began around 8 p.m. Thursday near 18th Street and Ogden Avenue.
Reports say that everyone made it out of the building. So far there have been no injuries.
The cause of the fire has yet to be determined. A high volume of combustibles, as well as a wooden fence between buildings, enhanced the flames according to Las Vegas Fire and Rescue.
American Red Cross volunteers are assisting 22 people, ensuring residents have a place to sleep, food, clothing, medication, and other essentials.
