A cooking fire from a homeless camp causes $60,000 in damage.
Firefighters battled a blaze at 84 Lumber’s location near the Las Vegas Strip.
While no one was injured, initial estimates place about $60,000 worth of damage at the yard.
A faulty fire hydrant near the South Decatur Blvd. location along with parked delivery trucks full of lumber caused delays, according to the Clark County Fire Department. In total, the fire took roughly 30 minutes to extinguish.
An initial investigation of the May 11 incident found that it was caused by a cooking fire from nearby homeless camp, the fire department said.
Based in Eight-Four, Pa., 84 Lumber operates more than 250 yards and manufacturing operations in 30 states.
