daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggg..........how many of those artificial trees were on fire...................................raven


Hi Raven.....if you take a look at the link on post 3 some visitors posted videos or tweets from their rooms and one shows the artificial trees up in smoke.  Very scary.  


Oh those were big fake Palm Trees, not the little 7' tall fake trees............that was a scarey looking situation..............................raven

 

ETA..........hey kiddo, how are you doing.

There is a fire house right on Las Vegas Boulevard so fortunately they arrived very quickly.

Well that's a real shame. I hope everyone gets out ok.

 

Can somebody help me out though? On the ABC site they have a few cell phone videos from people in the hotel. One of them is obviously close and you can hear this guy saying "Unbelievable...oh my god there is a fire going on right outside my room"

 

 

Is he nuts??!!??...It's like...leave dummy!

Yes, he should have left but I'm sure it was confusing.  My understanding of that hotel/casino is there is a shorter high rise up against another taller which is the West End Tower so they were able to look down and see the smoke and flames.

From the looks of that smoke, being so black, it looks like a tar and gravel roof was burning.

You can be sure that Clark County will do a complete investigation to not only find out how the fire started but how it quickly jumped onto the plastic trees plus enact new laws to prevent this from ever happening again.  Many locals are incensed and outraged over the stupidity of that hotel/casino putting lives in jeopardy. The economy here depends on tourists both domestic and international feeling safe; this was not good.
