LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) – A home fire this morning displaced four adults and four children in the 9000 block of Iron Cactus Avenue, near West Pebble and South Fort Apache roads.

Four adults and three children are being assisted by the Southern Nevada Chapter of the American Red Cross.

According to a news release, Clark County firefighters responded to the call around 3 a.m. The calls were generated by concerned neighbors, and the first-in crews found an occupied house with no residents on scene and heavy smoke showing.

Interior crews were able to bring the fire under control within 10 minutes of making entry, but construction features had allowed the fire to spread to the second floor via a utility chase.

Crews worked to expose all areas that had been damaged by fire and insure that the fire had not extended into hidden areas. With Metro’s assistance, the Fire Department was able to determine the name of the primary resident, and she was contacted and advised of the situation at the home.

The home was badly damaged by heat, smoke, and water leaving it temporarily uninhabitable. The preliminary estimated damage figure was set at $150,000.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
