Authorities respond to possible drug lab near LV strip


A Hazmat team is responding to a possible drug lab reported in a residential area just east of the Las Vegas Strip.

Las Vegas Fire & Rescue said its team was headed to the 5300 block of Sierra Vista Drive, dear Desert Inn and Paradise roads.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said officers got a call about an unknown trouble at about 5 a.m., and when they responded they could smell “strong fumes coming from the apartment.”

Officers are evacuating nearby apartments to investigate, and Sierra Vista is closed in both directions between Paradise and Swenson.
