Garage fire in northwest valley displaces two residents

Two people were forced from their home Friday night when a fire devoured the insides of their garage.

Fire dispatchers received a report of a fire at the 8200 block of Maplestar Road, near Durango Driva and Washington Avenue, around 7 p.m., Las Vegas Fire & Rescue said.

When firefighters arrived, they saw smoke and heavy flames coming from the garage of the two-story home. Firefighters stopped the progress of the blaze and were able to protect the house from serious destruction, but not before $10,000 in damage was done.

Officials said the cause of the accident has not be determined, but it does appear to have been started accidentally.
