City fire crews and members of the Gallinas Volunteer Fire Department were busy responding to two separate fires late Monday and early Tuesday.
The first blaze broke out in a vacant building on Commerce Street, beneath the overpass. Crews were dispatched to that scene a little after 7 p.m. Monday.
Las Vegas Fire Chief Phillip Mares said the building had pretty much been gutted prior to the fire, although there was debris inside the structure that burned.
Mares said that fire appears to have been started by homeless people trying to stay warn.
