NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — A disabled man has been hospitalized after he was pulled from a North Las Vegas home after a fire.

The North Las Vegas Fire Department was dispatched Tuesday to a blaze at a single-family home on the 2100 block of Lawry Avenue. When firefighters arrived the flames had been extinguished, but the home was still full of smoke.
