An apartment fire that displaced 25 people Thursday night has been ruled accidental by Las Vegas fire officials.

The fire started in a utility chase on the second floor, went up into attic and spread from there. The cause remains under investigation.

The 16-unit apartment fire left many units badly damaged, but all residents escaped safely.

Las Vegas Fire and Rescue responded to the two-alarm blaze at Ashford Manor near Jones Boulevard and Smoke Ranch Road. The fire started shortly after 6:30 p.m.
