Firefighters extinguish business fire in east Las Vegas

A large fire broke out at a business in east Las Vegas early Friday.

Las Vegas Fire Department spokesman Tim Szymanski said the fire was reported at 3:44 a.m. at Electric Liquidators, 100 N. Pecos Road, near Charleston Boulevard.

When firefighters arrived they found a large, single-story warehouse ablaze.

“Heavy fire showing,” the Fire Department said on its Twitter page. “Fire thru roof, crews setting up master streams, defensive operations.”

By 6 a.m. the blaze was extinguished. Szymanski said the electric business was “gutted” while another adjacent business was moderately damaged. No injuries were reported and Pecos Road has been reopened to traffic.

Clark County and North Las Vegas fire departments assisted in fighting the fire.
