Kitchen fire prompts evacuation of Golden Nugget in Vegas

By Associated Press

POSTED:



LAS VEGAS >> Fire officials say about 1,000 people were briefly evacuated from Las Vegas' Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino because of a smoky kitchen fire.

Spokesman Timothy Szymanski says a dishwashing machine caught fire late Friday afternoon, but was quickly put out by an automatic sprinkler.

But he says the fire generated a lot of smoke and prompted the evacuation for about a half hour.

No injuries were reported. Damage was estimated at about $5,000.
