Article: Reduced to Rubble: Decay and neglect destroy Las Vegas’ history

From the Las Vegas Optic

Las Vegas lost another piece of history recently when a brick building on Grand Avenue crumbled onto the sidewalk below.

According to Virginia Marrujo, the interim community development director for the City of Las Vegas, the building near the intersection of Grand and Douglas Avenues once belonged to the Maloof family. She said code enforcement officers, police, firefighters and workers with the Environment Department responded soon after the initial collapse.
