LAS VEGAS (KTNV) - For the second time this weekend, firefighters were called to the scene of a fire at an apartment building at 6221 Bellota Drive, near Lake Mead and Jones boulevards.
Firefighters received reports of the fire around 12:48 a.m. Sunday. When they arrived, they saw heavy smoke and flames coming from the roof. It took about an hour to get the fire under control, and 90 minutes to put it out completely.
In Friday's incident, it was believed that electrical wires in the attic sparked the flames that caused $100,000 in damage and displaced 18 people.
At least 11 people returned to the other apartments after the fire on Friday. But Sunday's fire destroyed the roof, and the top two apartments had substantial damage. The families were once again displaced.
No injuries were reported in both fires on Friday and Sunday. The American Red Cross is assisting those who were displaced.
