Fire Damages Pyramid Way Realty Office

By  | 

SPARKS, NV - Sparks fire investigators are working to determine the cause of a fire that damaged a realty office on Pyramid Way early Saturday.

About 4AM, a driver on Pyramid Way called 911 after seeing the fire at Krch Realty, at 337 Pyramid Way, just north of Interstate 80.

Firefighters found extensive flames in the north side of the building that had extended into the attic.

Damage includes that from flame and smoke. Heat had also damaged a vacant building on the north side of the office and a parked car.

The building was built as a house in 1914, but has since been converted. The business was closed and nobody was inside.

Pyramid was closed to traffic briefly during the firefight in front of the building.

This is the second significant fire along that road in less than a week, with a medical complex having been seriously damaged at 2281 Pyramid Way Tuesday night. That fire is also still under investigation, but Fire Marshal Bob King says he does not believe the fires are related.
