Fire does $750,000 damage to custom home

A resident suffered minor injuries Tuesday night in a fire that caused an estimated $750,000 damage to a custom home near Patrick Lane and Torrey Pines Drive, the Clark County Fire Department said.

The cause is under investigation.

The fire was reported at about 11:45 p.m. at the single-story house in the 6400 block of Ponderosa Way, fire officials said.

Firefighters found heavy smoke and flames coming from the garage and discovered that the fire had already spread into the attic, officials said. The closest hydrant was 1,000 feet away, and water supply issues were further complicated when a private vehicle ran over a supply line, causing it to burst, officials said.

The fire was brought under control at 1:05 a.m. Wednesday, official said.

Two people were home when the fire broke out, and one suffered minor injuries but was not taken to the hospital, officials said.

A total of 16 trucks and 48 firefighters from the Clark County Fire Department and Las Vegas Fire and Rescue battled the two-alarm blaze.
