So my dad was on his way to work and he saw the Monte Carlo Hotel burning this is real!
Well that's pretty current! How bad was the blaze?
Well its at the top on the fasad and people are traped turn to CNN OR BBC because your in the UK im going there right now. Link
Yeah, just checking it out on CNN right now... Doesn't look to major thankfully. I'm curious to know the cause.
It's across the top center section of the hotel. Putting out a good bit of smoke, but it appears to be contained primarily to the façade.
3-alarm fire so far .. from Msnbc news
Well you can see the smoke from the state line well thst what they said on channel 8
It's black smoke making me think the HVAC system burned out causing electrical fires and then spreading.
It's "façade" and "trapped" but I haven't heard any report yet about people actually being trapped - did you hear that on CNN? I sure hope that is not the case...
I heard it on 3 local stations and CNN
Okay... Well, if that is the case I sure hope there are no casualities... So far it looks to be fairly contained...
Now there saying that Traffic from Tropicana to Harmon is beging deverted
The top 4 stories are starting to catch on fire
The pictures on Sky News make it seem pretty big... and look like it's still spreading although the initial blacked area does seem to be out. And some rooms lower down appearing to be on fire too now...
Wonder if people are still playing the slots...
It definitely looks like it's spreading now. Of course, if the firefighters haven't been able to do anything yet to supress the flames then that would make sense. Hopefully they'll be able to contain it soon...
It's pretty clear that it's just the façade...looks to be extremely flammable. Should be mostly superficial damage though if they can get it under control.
The lower sections are burning because flaming debris is landing on a ledge four floors down and catching there.
The Facade must be made of a petroleum based product.
Cheap,shoddy work if you ask me.
GRISSOM: When you're hot...
Firefighters appear to be inside and battling the blaze right now...
That is 4 floors below the facade.
You're much better than the SKY newsreaders (admittedly not that hard) who haven't yet figured out that there's a ledge and are trying to figure out how the flames got down there
It looks like its getting bigger and getting inside
Well its almost out no reoprts of injuries
Doesn't look out to me.
http://www.knbc.com/videostream/9476753/detail.html has a live stream
What's interesting is that you can hear the reporter doing "off camera" interviews.
This fire is under control and should be out within the hour. Don't let the sensationalist media fool you.
Yes, it does look like they have things relatively under control now...
