The landlord of the downtown Las Vegas apartment building where a December fire killed six has listed his family’s mansion for sale.

Adolfo Orozco faces involuntary manslaughter charges in connection with the deadly Alpine Motel Apartments fire, which left more than a dozen injured. The blaze also triggered wrongful death lawsuits in which Orozco has been named as a defendant.

The 6,250-square-foot, Southern Highlands Country Club mansion was first listed Monday on Simply Vegas. The six-bedroom, six-bath home, which property records show is in the name of Orozco’s wife, Erika Ayala, is going for $2,995,000.

“Never before has this hidden gem been available,” the listing reads.

A  single man has taken a novel route to finding a date after deciding that dating apps weren’t working for him.

30-year-old Alan Clayton from Kettering listed himself in the Items for Sale section on Facebook, with the description “free” and in a “good/used condition”.

Clayton told SWNS: “I’ve tried conventional apps like Tinder and Plenty of Fish but nothing has really happened so I went to sign up to e-Harmony.

“They asked me lots of questions and I suddenly thought why don’t I just advertise myself online on a bargain adverts page.”

Since Clayton shared the ad on 10 September it has been shared thousands of times and his inbox has been flooded with messages. 

“I was up past midnight reading all of the messages of support from people. I’ve had women show some interest but it has not really led to anything,”
