1 Person Found Dead In Las Vegas House Fire

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas fire officials say one person has died after a house near downtown caught fire.

Firefighters were called to a fire Monday at 5 a.m. and found a fire on the roof of the home. Witnesses told crews the one-story home has been vacant but is known to be frequented by squatters.

When crews extinguished the fire, they discovered one person dead inside a bedroom. Las Vegas Fire Department spokesman Tim Szymanski said no firefighters were injured. No other details were released.
