Fire breaks out on the roof and top floor of the Monte Carlo hotel,Las Vegas

Jan 25 2008 Las Vegas
A major fire has broken out on the roof and top floor of a hotel and casino complex in the US city of Las Vegas.

TV pictures showed plumes of smoke rising from the Monte Carlo hotel on the city's main street, the Strip.

City and country firefighters were called to the blaze, which broke out at about 1100 (1900 GMT).

No injuries were reported and the building was evacuated, but the fire is proving difficult to put out as firefighters have to get to the roof.

Large crowds have gathered to watch the spectacle, and there are reports of debris falling from the roof.

The 3,000-room Monte Carlo hotel and adjoining casino are owned by entertainment company MGM Mirage.

    Yes..of course. Because a roof-top fire breaking out and a plane full of jet fuel smashing into a steel structure at 300-400 mph is quite comparable."
    So what of building 7 you ignorant American.

  • Crazy stuff...

    I was not even 5 min away when this fire broke out, you could see the smoke just pouring into the sky. From a distance I thought it was a lot worse.

    Monte Carlo is/was a nice casino...
