Firefighters concerned about fires in vacant homes

The Las Vegas valley is bracing for a cool down over the holiday weekend. Temperatures are expected to dip into the 30-degree range Wednesday night and the overnight lows will remain there for the next few days.

As the weather turns cold, area firefighters expect to see an increasing number of house fires.

There were two this past weekend caused by squatters trying to stay warm inside boarded-up homes. There are currently around 16,000 vacant homes in the valley.

The homes become targets for squatters who are looking for shelter and a place to keep warm on a cold night.

In one of the weekend fires, it was the second time the same boarded-up home caught fire.
