Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Crews were called to the scene of a fire where large trees had caught fire.
It happened around 12:45 p.m. Wednesday on North 23rd Street, near Bonanza Road and Eastern Avenue.
Las Vegas Fire & Rescue said three large palm trees caught fire near a carport of a one-story wood frame home.
The roof of the carport caught fire, causing damage.
The fire was quickly extinguished by firefighters, who prevented it from entering the living portion of the house.
Crews said the fire started when workers were trimming the palm trees. They refueled their saw while it was hot and it burst into flames, causing the trees to catch fire.
There were no injuries reported.
The residents will be allowed back into their home once utilities are turned back on, later in the day.
