LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - One person had to be hospitalized after a fire broke out at an Amazon.Com warehouse in North Las Vegas Tuesday night.

Firefighters were called to the giant facility near Pecos and Gowan around 10:30pm.

The building is equipped with fire sprinklers, and that combined with the efforts of the North Las Vegas Fire Department resulted in the flames being doused in short order.

The person who was hospitalized was taken in for smoke inhalation.

No damage estimate was given. What caused the fire remains under investigation.
