HENDERSON, Nev. -- A brush fire in Henderson was seen shooting flames up to 50 feet high in the area of Whitney Ranch in Henderson Sunday.
News 3's Jerry Brown is at the scene of yesterday's raging inferno with the story.
Fire crews were called to the scene about 7 p.m. Sunday after a report of a single palm tree on fire near Sunset Boulevard and Arroyo Grande.
The high winds and dry conditions caused the blaze to spread across Sunset Boulevard and briefly threatened several apartment buildings. But crews were able to bring it under control within about 20 minutes.
The crew of 30 firefighters remained on scene another three hours to make sure all the hot spots in surrounding brush were extinguished.
No one was hurt.
