UPDATE: Firefighters say the fire is contained, as of Wednesday evening. It burned approximately 14 acres.

Crews with Nevada Division of Forestry, BLM and Clark County Fire worked through the night and most of Wednesday. The fire did not prompt any evacuations or cause any property damage. The cause of the fire is under investigation


UPDATE: Firefighters say the fire is 70% contained, as of Wednesday morning.  It has burned just over 14 acres. 

ORIGINAL: The fire burned six to ten acres in the Clark County Wetlands Park, but looked much bigger because of the huge plume of smoke that spread through Las Vegas.

The fire was reported just before 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Firefighters say no homes were ever threatened by the fire burning near the eastern end of Tropicana Avenue.

Crews are still working to determine what started the fire.
