Neighbors blame house fire on hoarding

LAS VEGAS -- A home near Sahara Avenue and Rainbow Boulevard caught on fire early Monday morning, and at one point, most of the backyard was engulfed in flames because of the amount of junk being stored there.

Dylan Taucer lives right next door and says he knew this was bound to happen.

"He was actually living there and dumping junk in the backyard," Taucer said. “He was doing this for his job, and collecting junk in a big truck and dumping in the backyard and I watched him do it."

Everything from toilet seats to couches and TVs, all piled up in the back and front yards of the home.

Next door neighbors say this isn't the first time they have filed a complaint with the county about their neighbor's mess.

Downtown Summerlin preparing to debut

LAS VEGAS -- Downtown Summerlin, a new mall, is putting on the finishing touches to open Oct. 9. The 1.6 million square feet of shopping will be home to a Macy's, a movie theater and office buildings.

There's a lot of work to be done but the 2,000 construction workers on the project are working long hours to hit that deadline. An 8 News NOW news crew got a special tour Friday.

Brick by brick Downtown Summerlin is starting to come together. Technicians were busy Friday turning on the lights near the front entrance where cars can drive right up to stores like Lululemon and Michael Kors. Another crew was working on an outdoor dining area.

"We're building a downtown and a downtown doesn't sprout up overnight," said Vicki Rousseau, director of marketing for Downtown Summerlin.





Dozens of stores have announced partnerships with Downtown Summerlin, but the project got off to a rocky start.
