Several people called emergency crews about the flames, according to fire officials.

Arriving firefighters reported that one condo building in the framing stage was already heavily involved with fire. The flames were also advancing toward other buildings under construction, and a second alarm was then called in to send more personnel to the scene.

Fire crews were eventually able to extinguish the flames, with over 65 fire personnel responding to the condo construction project.

LVFR reported no injuries in the incident.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, and crews continue to examine the extent of damages.
