LAS VEGAS — No injuries are reported after a fire in an escalator area forced patrons off the casino floor several blocks off the Las Vegas Strip.
Clark County spokeswoman Stacey Welling told the Las Vegas Sun that firefighters doused the fire after it spread up a wall to the second floor of the Terrible's Hotel & Casino a little before 6 p.m. Sunday.
Welling says no one was hurt, and that hotel guests in their rooms were told to stay there.
She says the gambling area of the casino at Flamingo and Paradise roads was evacuated while firefighters cleared smoke from the building.
