The Original Pancake House Destroyed

(Las Vegas, NV) — Officials are investigating what caused an early-morning fire that destroyed a popular Las Vegas pancake house while it was closed for the night.

Las Vegas fire officials say a passerby reported smoke coming from a rooftop air conditioning unit just before 3 a.m. Friday at The Original Pancake House on West Charleston Boulevard.

Fire crews used ladders to spray water from above after finding the attic area of the building had caved in and made it unsafe to enter.

The blaze was under control in about 15 minutes. No injuries have been reported.

Fire spokesman Tim Szymanski (zim-ANN’-skee) said the restaurant opened in 1995, and many of its two dozen employees have worked there from the beginning.
