Murder Victim Found in Garage Fire

Body Found in Burned-Out Garage

CLARK COUNTY, NEVADA, FIREFIGHTERS were called out to a garage fire Tuesday morning and after quickly knocking the fire down, they discovered a body inside the garage.

The fire was dispatched around 2:20 am when some neighbors saw smoke and flames coming from the single-family residence.  The FD arrived within a few minutes and had the fire out in about ten minutes.  The Las Vegas Metro police investigators responded after the fire was deemed suspicious by the FD, and they later determined that the victim was a likely homicide.

The victim has not yet been officially identified nor his cause of death.  The coroner's office will be the source of that information when they determine both.  The resident of the house, according to neighbors, was a man who lived alone.

The fire caused an estimated $75,000 damage.
