Las Vegas Fire and Rescue crews responded to a three-alarm fire at an apartment complex on N. 28th Street Sunday morning.

Crews responded to the fire at the Encantata Apartments just before 7 a.m., after receiving reports of heavy smoke in the neighborhood.

Two injuries have been reported, but both are minor. Fire officials say the two injured are experiencing back pain, after one jumped from the second story, while the other tried to catch them.

The American Red Cross is responding to the scene and will assist the 50 who are displaced because of the fire. Damages are estimated at $300,000.
