A pet died as a result of a mobile home fire in northeast Las Vegas Thursday evening.

Around 5 p.m., the Clark County Fire Department received reports of the fire in the 3400 block of North Pecos Road, between Gowan Road and Cheyenne Avenue.  

Upon their arrival, fire crews found a single wide mobile home that had several added on rooms that had fire and smoke showing.

Fire crews initiated an aggressive fire attack with a coordinated search for trapped occupants. After a few minutes, firefighters had achieved a knockdown of the fire and had determined that no people were inside the home.  

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Damage estimates are expected to top $20,000.

Two adults were displaced by the fire and the American Red Cross has responded.  

A total of 32 firefighters responded to this incident from both the Clark County and North Las Vegas Fire Departments. There were no injuries as a result of this incident.

Clark County Fire Department did not specify what kind of pet died in the fire.
