A fire has destroyed a vacant house just across the street from UMC in Las Vegas Thursday.

The fire was reported at the south corner of W. Charleston Boulevard and Westwood Drive around 8 a.m., Las Vegas Fire & Rescue spokesman Tim Szymanski said.

Flames shot through the roof of the house and firefighters had to set up defensive operations, he said. 

By the time the fire was put out, the house was completely destroyed.

The building was in the process of being torn down, according to Szymanski. No injuries were reported.

There was no immediate word on what caused the fire, though Szymanski said the house was possibly being used by homeless individuals.
