Las Vegas firefighters reported the 2-alarm fire about 12:30 p.m. in a vacant two-story building at 600 East Bridger Avenue, near Fremont Street and Las Vegas Boulevard. The building had been vacant for 15 years. 

No injuries were reported, but the fire department said squatters were seen fleeing the building. No exact cause of the fire was determined, the fire department said on Twitter. Damage was estimated at about $100,000.
