One person died and another is hospitalized after a fire broke out early Monday morning inside a central Las Vegas apartment. A fire alarm signal from 3930 University Center Drive called Clark County Fire Department crews to the building at approximately 5:35 a.m., Deputy Fire Chief Billy Samuels stated in a news release. After arriving at the 10-story residential high-rise, Samuels said crews starting climbing stairs to the fifth floor, where they found smoke and low heat. Forcing open the door to the apartment, fire crews "found limited visibility and moderate heat in a residential unit." After knocking down the fire, crews encountered one victim who was removed from the apartment unit and transferred to a medical unit, Samuels stated. That victim is said to have "succumbed to their injuries."
