Las Vegas, NV (June 17, 2022) – After a fire overnight at a residence in northwest Las Vegas, three people were hospitalized and 11 were displaced.
The fire started about 3:00 a.m. on June 17 at 3332 Crystal Tower Street, located between West Cheyenne Avenue and the 215 Beltway, according to Las Vegas Fire & Rescue spokesman Tim Szymanski. Two cars parked in the driveway were also on fire, per statements released by the LVFR. The front of a two-story wood frame/stucco home erupted in flames near the garage, rescue crews reported.
The majority of the fire was extinguished within 30 minutes, however, seven people, four children, and three pets were displaced. Two of the house’s inhabitants were brought to the hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation, and a firefighter was also sent to the hospital for observation. Per details provided by Szymanski, the fire appeared to have started in the garage and spread to the cars in the driveway, causing extensive black smoke damage all around the area.
The cause of the fire is still being investigated at this time, and the evacuated residents were being helped by the American Red Cross.
We wish all those wounded in this fire a speedy recovery, and we are thinking of all the displaced residents and their families.
Las Vegas-Area House Fires and Burn-Related Injuries
Nevada officials documented more than twenty fatal house fires in 2020 alone. In addition, the national average for deaths and injuries per thousand fires in 2019 was roughly three. Commercial fires, as well as other burn injuries, result in a small number of deaths and injuries, but they are devastating to those who are affected.
Severe burns may occur when a person is exposed to very intense flames, caustic or acidic chemicals, and extreme heat. These injuries may cause long-term abnormalities and expensive medical procedures, such as skin grafts and other surgery, in addition to being excruciatingly painful.
Those who are affected by these occurrences sometimes experience financial ruin, horrific injuries, and long-term emotional anguish. When people die as a consequence of fire-related injuries, their families may find themselves in an extremely stressful and terrible situation.
