HENDERSON (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- Two people were treated for smoke inhalation in a fire that caused $200,000 in damage Saturday morning.
The Henderson Fire Department had to rescue several people off balconies at the 12-unit building at the Bellevue Apartments at 6551 Annie Oakley Drive (near Sunset and Sandhill). The fire started about 8:30 a.m.
"The two were taken to UMC for treatment of smoke inhalation and two more were evaluated on the scene and released," Battalion Chief Tim McKeever told News 3. "The second-floor apartment was a total loss estimated at about $200,000 and five other apartments had minor damage."
The Red Cross said six people were displaced by the fire, but managers at the complex were finding temporary shelter for them.
McKeever said the cause of the fire is under investigation.
