Crews respond to house fire near Buffalo and Westcliff

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Las Vegas Fire Department responded to a house fire on Huntly Road near Buffalo and Westcliff.

It happened around 9:20 p.m. on Thursday.

Crews initially believed one person was trapped on the second floor. First responders couldn't enter the house because it was too dangerous, so they attacked the flames from the outside.

Once it was contained, crews searched the residence, but did not find anyone inside. The department believes that person ran out of the house just in time.

Another person who had been in the house was taken to the hospital after suffering from smoke inhalation.

The cause and estimated damage is still unknown.
