LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The Las Vegas Valley lit up on Sunday night to mark the Fourth of July holiday.

While authorities worked hard to curb illegal fireworks in city and county limits, high-firing displays could be seen from Henderson to North Las Vegas starting at sundown.

Las Vegas Fire and Rescue, the agency that oversees downtown, west and northwest Las Vegas, said since midnight on July 4, they responded to 427 calls for service compared to 438 in 2020, and 118 fire-related incidents compared to 146 in 2020.

Just after midnight, LVFR responded to at least three house fires with minor to no injuries. Overnight, the department said they mainly responded to a number of palm tree, brush and trash fires.

The Clark County Fire Department said it responded to 200 calls for outside and building fires from 12 a.m. on July 4 to 10 a.m. on July 5. As of Monday morning, Clark County Fire Chief Warren Whitney was unable to provide information about the causes of the fires. 


LVFR responded to a vehicle fire at 8344 Pendragon Circle about 10:15 p.m. The vehicle was inside the garage of the two-story home, they said. The door from the garage to the house was open, filling the house with smoke. 

Clark County Fire Department responded to at least one structure fire about 8:55 p.m., according to dispatch logs. The agency was also listed as on scene of multiple outside fires around 10:30 p.m.

North Las Vegas Fire Department also showed as responding to multiple outside fires in the 9 p.m. hour.

Resorts across the valley joined in on the celebration, with Station Casinos properties displaying fireworks shows at 9 p.m., followed by Plaza Hotel Casino in downtown Las Vegas at 10 p.m. Strip resorts hosted fireworks displays at 11 p.m.
