LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- North Las Vegas firefighters battled a two-alarm fire at an abandoned building overnight.

NLVFD said the fire started around 2:30 a.m. in the area of 5th Street and Lake Mead Boulevard. NLVFD said due to the blaze, firefighters couldn't enter the building to put the fire out, having to fight it from the outside.

Fifty firefighters between NLVFD and Las Vegas Fire and Rescue helped extinguish the blaze, NLVFD said.

Most of the fire was on the second floor, NLVFD said. No one was inside when the fire started and no one was injured fighting the fire. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
