LAS VEGAS (AP) - Fire officials say one woman has been seriously injured after a townhome erupted into flames in southern Nevada.

The Henderson Fire Department says the Wednesday fire started in an upstairs bedroom.

The woman was found lying on the floor and taken to a hospital in serious condition.
