Las Vegas city firefighters are at the scene of a three-alarm fire that has engulfed a Kmart store building, a Clark County fire official said Saturday.
The Las Vegas Fire Department received the call about the blaze at 3 p.m. at 2975 E. Sahara Ave. near McLeod Street, and 30 units had arrived to try and douse it just before 4 p.m., according to Clark County Fire Department Assistant Chief Scott Carnahan.
The “entire building” was on fire as firefighters took a defensive posture outside, Carnahan said.
“There’s too much danger to going inside the building,” he said.
No one was initially reported injured, and there were no immediate details on how the fire started, he said.
A thick smoke plume could be seen across the valley.
