  1. A boarded up house? I wonder is it in a state of foreclosure?? Sad Las Vegas. Let's see how many more house and structure fires the LVFD will put out this year on buildings with derelict home owners, or bank owned homes that the bank will never care about... WAKE UP LAS VEGAS the foreclosures need to be pushed through in a time frame. Make a new law, with a time table.
