Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Red Cross emergency shelter located at Bilbray Elementary School says it is ready for residents who were evacuated because of the wildfire in the Spring Mountains.
Most of the people who had to leave went to a hotel or are staying with friends but some people had no place to go.
One of those people is Aaron Gock.
Gock works as a campground host and lives in his RV on the mountain. He said that Las Vegas police directed him to the shelter where he was relieved to find out that he could bring his dog with him.
City and county animal control officers have also brought in multiple large trailers in anticipation of horses needing a place to stay.
Gock doesn't know when he will be allowed to go back home but he is grateful for a place to stay.
Right now, there are only a couple of people at the shelter.
However, they are expecting that to change the longer people are not able to go home.
