LAS VEGAS, NV (NV)- Fire raced through a home in the far northest Valley on Thursday night, but no injuries were reported.

Just before 7pm, The Clark County Fire Department received multiple 911 calls reporting that the front of a home was on fire at 5775 E. Cheyenne Boulevard, just east of Nellis.  

Arriving firefighters found a single story structure with heavy fire coming from multiple openings to include doors and windows.  Fanned by the strong and gusty winds the fire rapidly extended to a vehicle, trailer, family residence and other items in close proximity to the burning structure.
