Ten people displaced from home after garage fire

Clark County firefighters put out blazes at two houses Thursday night and early today, including one that broke out in the garage of a two-story home and displaced 10 people, officials said.

Nobody was injured in either fire.

The first fire was reported shortly after 11 p.m. Thursday at a house in the 7400 block of Speedwell Cavern Street, in the area of Torrey Pines Drive and Warm Springs Road, according to the Clark County Fire Department.

Smoke and flames were coming from the garage, where a fire had started in a vehicle, officials said. Crews put out the fire before it spread to the rest of the home, which sustained significant smoke damage, officials said.

The American Red Cross was called to assist the 10 people who were forced out by the fire, officials said.

The second fire was reported about 1 a.m. at an apparently vacant house in the 4100 block of East Carey Avenue, west of Lamb Boulevard, officials said.

Flames and smoke were coming from the single-story home, but the fire did not spread to any adjacent houses, officials said. The cause of the blaze and the extent of damage have not been determined, officials said.
