LAS VEGAS -- A massive fire at a construction site in the northeast part of Las Vegas now has the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI involved.
Construction was not complete at what was to be an Islamic cemetery, mortuary, and community center when the fire broke out. The facility is near Carey Avenue and Lamb Boulevard.
Las Vegas police say they consider this a place of worship, which is why federal investigators are now involved.
Flames lit the skies early this morning, as Clark County Firefighters worked to put out the massive fire. By daybreak, fire crews had control of the blaze, and firefighters were able to confirm it was to be an Islamic site for burial, a community center, and a mortuary.
