The Clark County Fire Department says they received a 911 call reporting a fire on the top floor of a 6-story medical office building located at 3201 South Maryland Parkway, near Desert Inn Road.  

Fire crews arrived and were told that workers were welding on the fire standpipe on the 6th floor when some sparks ignited trash contained in a large trash bin nearby.  The fire grew to a point where the fire sprinklers activated and were successful in keeping the fire from extending to other areas of the building. More than 60 firefighters from the Clark County Fire Department, Las Vegas Fire/Rescue and the North Las Vegas Fire Department responded to this incident.

There were no injuries as a result of this fire and damage estimates are not currently available.

A four-vehicle crash occurred on Charleston and Decatur boulevards. Officers say a  2002 Honda struck the right side of a 1997 Toyota causing both vehicles to spin out. A 2014 Volkswagen then hit the right side of the 2002 Honda. The Toyota hit the front of a Ford and then came to rest in southbound lanes of Decatur.

One of the passengers of the Honda suffered critical injuries as a result of this crash and the driver of the Honda, Santiago Herrera-Geraldo, showed signs of impairment. That driver was later charged.

In total, 1 person was critically injured and six others received minor injuries in the crash.
