    I just stayed there in December. Actually my room was on the side that daught fire. I was about 4 floors lower than were the fire was. The fire was not bad, the expense of repair will be massive I'd bet.

    Hotel is closed. Fire Dept. doing their investigation and will turn it over to the COunty for structural safety etc. before it will repopen. Did great job evacuating guests and employees. All employees were mustered to the New York New York and Guests were sent to the MGM Grand Arena where they were all accounted for. They will be put up at the other MGM properties. People coming to town to check in at the MOnte Carlo are being routed to the MGM Grand Arena and they willbe put up at one of the other MGM hotels. Fire was mostly exterior as lot of facia was styrofoam with concret texture over it. No official cause. Fire Dept and all emergency personnel did a terrific job in responding and getting a handle on the complete situation. All Emergency Response Depts. meet weekly to work on plans to handle emergencies like this.
    With many highrise hotels here in Las Vegas, this is a big item. Don't want another MGM, Las Vegas INternational or Staratosphere fire. No major injuries. I believe there were 6 hotel engineers suffered smoke and a couple guests.
    Emergency personnel di an excellent sweeping the floors that everybody was out and fire dept personnel did a great job getting hoses and water to the very top. They are to be commended. All other hotels was business as usual.

    Good Shooting
