Crews responded around 5:24 p.m. and immediately observed heavy smoke. Authorities say the building was locked up, and crews established defensive operations.

The fire reportedly went through the building roof and master streams are in operation.

Authorities ask the public to avoid the area, as Las Vegas Boulevard will be closed in both directions near where it intersects with 4th Street.
