An apartment complex fire Monday in the western Las Vegas Valley displaced 12 people and caused about $150,000 in damage, officials said.

Firefighters responded at 4:24 p.m. to the fire at the Summerlin Entrada apartments, 1701 Rock Springs Drive, Building 15. That location is near the interchange of U.S. 95 and West Lake Mead Boulevard.

Fire department spokesman Tim Szymanski said a wood-burning fireplace at the two-story building had been in use and fire was able to get into the attic. Firefighters contained the fire to the attic and extinguished the blaze in about 15 minutes.

In addition to the apartment where the fire occurred, Szymanski said one apartment had water damage and two had an odor of smoke. No one was injured.
