Units in Apartment Complex Condemned

LAS VEGAS -- Mother Nature is wreaking havoc on valley residents at one apartment complex. The building they call home is on a ridge that is is crumbling and causing damage to the units.

Clark County has condemned part of the Mesa Ridge complex near Russell Rd. and Nellis Blvd. Eight families have been displaced after part of the complex was blocked off. However management was able to move those residents into other vacant apartments in a safer part of the complex.

A spokesperson for the apartment building says they've been dealing with the ridge crumbling since they first built the complex five years ago.

"Immediately we noticed that when it rained it seemed a lot of debris fell off the mesa and came through here and actually caused damage to lower homes behind us," said Ginger Reed, spokesperson.

Now that the county has condemned part of the complex, work will begin to secure the area.

Crash Causes Concerns About Flight Zones

LAS VEGAS -- A small plane that crashed landed in a Las Vegas neighborhood Monday morning, killing a 45-year-old Louisiana man. Three others on board survived.

The plane narrowly missed slamming into homes, and residents say that's exactly why the Federal Aviation Administration needs to enforce stricter flight rules on where pilots can fly. They're hopeful, this crash helps their cause.

In Henderson, there are homes right by the airport. It is common to see aircraft take off at the Henderson Executive Airport throughout the day. But after Monday's crash, every sight and every sound of them comes with concern.

"Now, whenever I hear it on top of the house, I will be with my ears standing up wondering when is it going to happen again," said Olga Marullo. "Before they know it, there will be another. Maybe even a disaster."
