LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – An overnight fire in Las Vegas left seven people looking for food and shelter, and it sent a child to the hospital.

Fire crews got the call about 12:40 a.m. to the Park Arms Apartments, located at 511 E. Sahara Avenue near Paradise.

When fire crews arrived, they found flames shooting from a second-story unit of an eight-unit building, home to a family of six.

The building manager, who lived below the family, was also displaced after his apartment was damaged due to the water used to extinguish the fire. The American Red Cross is helping all seven people.

A spokesperson with the Clark County Fire Department said the cause of the fire was under investigation, and the damage was estimated to be at $75,000. There were no major injuries, and officials said the child was taken to the hospital for observation.
