LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Crews in the Las Vegas area are investigating an east valley fire early Friday morning that left the building for one business "gutted" and another with "moderate" damage, according to authorities.

Electric Liquidators, a retail electrical equipment company at 101 North Pecos Road near Stewart Avenue, was closed at the time and no injuries were reported.

Firefighters from Las Vegas, Clark County and North Las Vegas fire departments responded to the fire around 3:45 a.m. after dispatchers received calls from a passer-by and a police officer on patrol.

When crews arrived, firefighters say heavy flames were coming out the front windows and through the roof of the building, which is a one-story large warehouse-type building that is subdivided into separate businesses.

Two additional businesses have some water and smoke damage, authorities say.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. No word on estimated damages at this time.
