Las Vegas (KLAS) — Investigators are still trying to figure out what caused the fire at Charleston Peak Lodge this morning.
It may take a few more days or weeks for the investigator to announce the official cause.
Many of the people we talked to said it was hard to believe that part of Las Vegas history was gone.
“It was a gathering place for the community as well as the visiting visitors. The inhabitants here, all the people who work here through the Forest Department,” said Leonie Mowat, Operations Director. Communication for the Southern Nevada Reserve.
Our AVI8TOR drone captured the aftermath video.
The fire on Friday burned down Charleston Peak Lodge, leaving only the shells of the building. We brought you a story as it broke early on Friday morning when firefighters fight fierce flames.
Investigators think it started near the cafeteria area. They don’t believe anyone was there at that time.
As of Monday morning, no information was released about what ignited.
This lodge plans to reconstruct and recreate the charm that many loved.
The good news is that no one was injured.
Firefighters were able to prevent the fire from spreading to nearby huts and trees.
