Budget Cuts Impact North Las Vegas Fire Department

Budget cuts have impacted the North Las Vegas Fire Department and had to shut down a station, reports KLAS-TV Las Vegas.

The closure is not permanent and officials said it could reopen as soon as Monday, dependent on staffing levels.

The President of the North Las Vegas Fire Fighter Union said they have lost 32 emergency personnel in the last year and that the city has not hired firefighters in over four years.

The cuts will mean fewer engines will be available to respond to calls during the Fourth of July holiday.
