LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say a mobile home resident is hospitalized after being overcome as firefighters doused a blaze that destroyed his home east of downtown Las Vegas.
A Clark County spokeswoman says county firefighters found the mobile home ablaze when they arrived shortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday off Vegas Valley Drive and Lamb Boulevard.
Spokeswoman Stacey Welling says no one was home when the fire started, but one of the two people was treated by paramedics after being overcome by a medical condition when the couple arrived home.
The cause of the fire is under investigation. Officials called the mobile home a total loss and estimated damage at $70,000.
American Red Cross spokesman Lloyd Ziel says his organization is helping the couple find another place to stay.
