Clark County Firefighters Still Don’t Know Cause Of Fire At Mt. Charleston Lodge

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) — Clark County Fire Officials said Monday that they still don’t know what started a fire at Mt. Charleston Lodge Friday.

CCFD Assistant Fire Chief Larry Haydu said the fire started in a store room under the patio deck of the lodge. Haydu described the area as storage space but said it was unclear exactly what was inside the storage area.

Because of that, Haydu said the cause of the fire is undetermined. Haydu said it will be ruled as accidental.

CCFD previously believed the fire started in the dining room.

The fire started around 4:45 a.m. Sept. 17. CCFD described the building as a “total loss” after crews fought the fire for hours. The fire didn’t spread to nearby cabins or wildlife.
