Las Vegas Fire Officials Say Fire Burned Bedroom

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas fire officials say a vacant house fire near downtown has been confined to one bedroom and nobody has
been hurt.

Las Vegas Fire & Rescue spokesman Tim Szymanski says authorities
found a broken window at the house but nobody inside the bedroom
where the fire started Sunday afternoon.

Authorities say the owner, who lives out of town, told investigators he has had a problem with homeless people squatting at the house.

Damage has been estimated at $10,000, confined to the bedroom of
the one-story house.
