Crews organized an offensive attack and applied water to the fire on the roof and building interior. A second alarm was called and then cancelled when firefighters were able to control the fire with the resources they already had on scene.

Five people safely evacuated from the business and no injuries were reported.

A City of Henderson senior fire investigator, NV Energy and Southwest Gas Corp. responded to help secure the property. Henderson Police Department assisted with traffic control.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation but is not considered suspicious at this time. The total estimated loss is valued at $75,000.
