CLARK COUNTY, NEVADA, FIREFIGHTERS ARE STILL ON THE SCENE this morning mopping up the remains of a massive outdoor fire at a pallet factory. The fire was discovered around 7:30 pm Tuesday night and burned through most of the night. The extreme summer heat in the desert city of Henderson called for extra alarms to provide relief crews and rotation of companies.
The fire spread to a neighboring building causing additional damages and several businesses in the industrial park were evacuated as a precaution. A Holiday Inn located close by was also evacuated as smoke began filling the hotel. All of the guests had to be relocated.
It was reported that several propane bottles became involved in the fire and their explosions were a factor in the fire as well. The cause of the fire is not yet known.
