Apartment Fire Damages Four Units, Displaces Five Residents

BOULDER CITY – Boulder City Fire Department responded to a call in the 800 block of Avenue B just before 3:00 today. On scene, they found two apartments on fire, spreading to a third unit. They were able to extinguish the fire quickly, but a fourth unit suffered extensive smoke and water damage. None of the resident were injured.

Henderson Fire Department assisted Boulder City on the scene, along with Boulder City Police. “We are so fortunate that the residents were not injured, and Our hearts go out to those impacted by this fire,” said Chief Kevin Nicholson. “It is tough on these crews – working in heavy gear in triple digit temperatures, but they responded with energy and commitment.”

One Boulder City firefighter suffered a minor injury, but did not require hospitalization. “The first responders reacted quickly to what could have been a deadly situation,” said City Manager Al Noyola. “It should make the residents of Boulder City feel even better about our public servants who respond to danger and calls for help, not knowing what the outcome could be. I appreciate their hard work and dedication.”

Red Cross arrived at the scene within an hour and worked to find shelter for the displaced residents. The cause of the fire is under investigation and more details should be available next week. No damage assessment is available at this time.
