LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say a three-alarm fire has broken out on the roof of the Monte Carlo hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
Flames and plumes of black smoke could be seen on what appeared to a west-facing rooftop of the resort.
The fire was spreading from the center section of the hotel across the roof line.
Las Vegas fire spokesman Tim Szymanski says city and county firefighters were on the scene. The fire was reported just before 11 a.m.
A dispatcher at American Medical Response said ambulances were being dispatched to the scene, but said there were no immediate reports of injuries
For 2 nights for $350 it was the worst hotel I ever stayed at in Vegas. Then we were told that we could take our gambling points off of the bill, it ended up to be only for food. Their buffet was the worst.
My daughters love to go to the spas at the hotels we stay at but they went to look at the spa and both of them said it was not good at all. All in all I have been to Vegas many times, we try to stay at different places and would never stay or recommend Monte Carlo to anyone.
On the morning of November 21, 1980, at about 07:10 PST, a fire broke out in a delicatessen at what was then the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino (now Bally's Las Vegas) in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, a well-known, 26-story luxury resort with more than 2,000 hotel rooms. The event remains the worst disaster in Nevada history.
About 5,000 people were in the hotel and casino at the time of the fire. Smoke and fire spread through the building, killing 84 people and injuring 785, including tourists and employees. There were 87 deaths in total, including three as a result of injuries sustained in the fire. Most fire damage occurred in the casino on the second floor and its adjacent restaurants, although most of the deaths were caused by smoke inhalation on the upper floors of the hotel. Openings in vertical shafts (elevators and stairwells) and seismic joints acted as chimneys and spread the smoke and heat all the way through the 26th floor.

The Monte Carlo isn't exactly keeping up with the Jones' when it comes to Vegas casinos.

Or....Maybe someone was just smoking in bed and this has nothing to do with aliens, conspiracies, the government, the mafia, or anything like that. Accidents DO happen.
