ORIGINAL STORY: LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A fire destroyed a former wedding chapel that's sat vacant on Tuesday night, Las Vegas Fire and Rescue said.

There were no known injuries in the Jan. 12 fire. 

Crews responded to 1431 S. Las Vegas Boulevard, near the Strat hotel-casino, about 5:30 p.m. Calls to 9-1-1 described the white building with smoke billowing out. An early report said someone was inside, but no one was found.

Las Vegas Fire and Rescue was working on containing a fire at a vacant former wedding chapel downtown.

When firefighters arrived, they saw smoke coming from the building which was boarded up and appeared secure, LVFR said. The fire grew intensely, so a second alarm was called to the scene. 

LVFR said 30 fire units and 70 personnel were on scene for the blaze. The damage to the building was estimated at $1 million. 

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
