VIDEO: Sunday, June 19 saw the largest fire in 25 years in the City of Las Vegas, and it happened in the middle of the night and in a populated neighborhood. And yet, nobody died.
Call it a miracle, but the new bodycam footage shows just how heroic the work of first responders was that night as they evacuated residents just feet from the relentless flames.
“Alright watch out,” said one officer, attempting to evacuate a condo as the flames roar nearby. He kicked down the door. “Metro police!” Las Vegas fire officials previously said the cause of the fire is not suspicious. They declined to provide any further updates as of this publishing. Still, they said they believe it originated in a vacant construction site, and they are investigating for the potential of arson.
“You guys gotta go!” shouted officers, who knocked on doors and busted them down to get people out while the flames raged on.
