LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities are investigating after a body was found in a burned apartment north of downtown Las Vegas.

Firefighters say they responded to reports of a fire near East Bonanza Road and North Maryland Parkway about 11 p.m. Wednesday.

They say flames were coming from a second-story apartment, and they evacuated three houses nearby because of the intensity.

After crews put out the blaze, they say they found a body on the floor of the bedroom.

Officials say the damage was confined to the bedroom and kitchen of the apartment and is estimated at about $75,000.

No other injuries have been reported, although four people have been displaced.

Authorities haven't yet released the identity of the person who died.
