New lawsuits filed in downtown Las Vegas fire that killed 6 at Alpine Motel

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- The Alpine Motel sits vacant and boarded up nearly two years after a fire that killed six people and injured more than a dozen others, but the fight in court continues.

There are two new lawsuits over the Dec. 21, 2019, blaze. One was filed by a man who jumped out of a window to escape the blaze. The other lawsuit was filed by the owner of the building, who claims he isn't the only one responsible.

"I used to walk that way," said Natasha Wen, who lives nearby. "After the fire I just do not."

She lives around the corner from the Alpine Motel.

I-Team: A year and one guilty plea later, Republicans remain quiet on false allegations of voter fraud

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- A year after supporters of former President Donald Trump told reporters to find evidence of the widespread irregularities in the 2020 election, a review at the Nevada Secretary of State’s Office found two dozen votes that are under review, one of which ended in a guilty plea.

Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske is a Republican. Her party censured her for defending the election, which she oversaw.

The Nevada Republican Party had delivered four boxes containing reports alleging fraud to Cegavske’s office in March. In several statements, party leaders said they had delivered more than 122,000 records supporting allegations of fraud... Read More
