Vacant home catches fire on East Lake Mead Boulevard
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A vacant home caught fire on East Lake Mead Boulevard on Friday morning.

Clark County officials have issued a notice to the property owners of the home and say it may need to be demolished.
It's not clear what started the fire, but authorities say homeless people have entered the home previously and may have ignited the blaze by a warming fire or from smoking.
