    I was flipping channels and saw on CNN that the Monte Carlo hotel in Las Vegas is on fire. Seems to be contained to the top floors, but it looks like it's spreading outward from the starting point. Lots of firy chunks are falling, causing it to spread to some lower floors and parts of the building below.

    I'm sure some websites will have coverage shortly.

    They certainly got it under control quickly, which , as you point out RonR, would be expected post MGM Grand. It's nearly out, looks like one spot still on fire. Seems it was actually limited to the facade of the building.

    Everyone was evacuated. This fire was clearly cover for a casino heist.

    I'll bet they kept playing on the floor of the MC.

    Although those images reminds me of the infamous MGM fire.
