LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The North Las Vegas Fire Department is investigating what sparked a fatal house fire that happened Friday night.

“I was just praying like I hope nobody is in that house,” says one neighbor along North Carroll Street.

Pictures taken by firefighters show the flames tearing through the home near Cheyenne & Civic Center around 9 p.m.

“The flames was everywhere, everyone was outside.”

Crews were able to get the fire out in an hour.

A man's body was found when investigators went into the home after.

Neighbors tell 13 Action News that man lived at the home and was a veteran.

“He didn’t deserve it, people that knew him didn’t deserve it."

Investigators estimate the total damage to the home at $150,000.
