Apartment Fire Claims Woman’s Life

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Clark County firefighters say they found a woman dead in an apartment when they responded to a fire overnight.

Authorities say they were called to the Monaco Park Apartments on Desert Inn Road about 2:30 a.m. Monday.

They say they found fire in the living room of a ground floor apartment, but were able to get it under control in less than 10 minutes and prevent it from spreading to other units.

Authorities haven’t yet released the name of the woman who was found dead.

No other injuries were reported in the fire. Crews estimated the damage to be $10,000.
