NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) North Las Vegas has razed another vacant home deemed a neighborhood eyesore, a code-enforcement headache and a magnet for arsonists.

Officials marked the demolition with applause on July 1 at the property on East Tonopah Avenue west of Fifth Street.

Mayor John Lee said eliminating unsafe structures can reduce police and fire calls and save the city thousands of dollars.

City community development and compliance chief Greg Blackburn says the house was the fifth demolished under a city blight removal program created in 2013.

North Las Vegas became the first municipality in Nevada to use federal neighborhood stabilization grant money to remove blighted single-family homes.

City officials said the Tonopah Avenue property had three fires, 14 police calls for service and dozens of unresolved code violations during the last five years.
