LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

An early morning house fire required multiple firefighters to respond in the south part of town on Saturday.

Clark County Fire and the Henderson Fire Department were called to a residence in the 2000 block of Spiers Avenue, near St. Rose Parkway and Spencer Street, just after 6 a.m. with reports of a house fire.

Arriving firefighters saw heavy smoke coming from a 2-story singe family residence, with flames extended to two cars in the driveway.

Firefighters said they took a defensive approach and were able to knockdown the bulk of the fire starting from the outside.

Fire crews were then able to check the rest of the house for further signs of the fire, including the attic and other hidden spaces, according to CCFD.

The two occupants of the house are now displaced, but were able to escape the house and not injured. Firefighters also said a dog from the residence was found unharmed.

A total of 43 firefighters responded to the blaze and the cause of the fire, along with a damage estimate, remain under investigation according to authorities.
