A series of the 911 calls made on the night the Alpine Motel Apartments fire went up into flames were released to 8 News Now by the City of Las Vegas Thursday. The calls detail the moments after residents and victims called 911, along with when first responders arrived at the scene that fateful night Dec. 21.
The calls reporting flames and heavy smoke to the three-story apartment building on 9th Street between Stewart Avenue and Ogden Avenue, started to come in at around 4:15 a.m.
“I made it out, Oh my God!,” said one of the fire victims.
Another man is heard on one of the calls describing people jumping out of the first and second windows of the building.
“This place is going up in smoke and there are people trapped in there,” said another caller coughing and having difficulty breathing and talking to dispatch.
