NORTH LAS VEGAS -- Firefighters battled a blaze Thursday near W. Washburn Road and Valley Drive, but investigators were called to the scene once it was discovered that the fire may have been the work of arson.
North Las Vegas Fire said the fire happened in early evening in the 4300 block of Roaming Breeze Road.
A man that's just going by "Kary" said he knows the woman who lives at the home. According to Kar, the woman had been fighting with her roommate about a pit bull puppy, so tempers flared and threats were made when the dog got out of an unlocked gate.
"I believe he did it and that it was arson. We've never had a problem with anything before, and the same day he threatens to burn down the house, the house catches on fire," said Kary.
Neighbor Tom Noack thought someone was inside, so he ran into the burning home to help.
