One person was treated for smoke inhalation after a mobile home caught fire this afternoon on the city’s west side, officials said.
The blaze erupted at about 1 p.m. at the Tropicana Village Mobile Home park, in the 5900 block of West Tropicana Avenue, inside the home at space 115, according to the Clark County Fire Department.
When firefighters arrived, the mobile home’s lower portion was burning. It took the crew about 30 minutes to put out the blaze.
One person was rescued from inside and treated for smoke inhalation. The person refused to be taken to the hospital.
Damage was estimated at $10,000.
Officials could not say late Tuesday whether arson is suspected, but the Clark County Investigation Division is at the scene trying to determine the fire’s cause.
Investigators generally are summoned when a fire appears suspicious because they have special equipment to search for traces of flammable liquids, Deputy Chief Erik Newman said.
