Two Injured After Hotel Catches Fire On The Las Vegas Strip
At least two people were treated for smoke inhalation after a fire at the pool of the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
The Clark County Fire Department responded to the hotel after 12:30 p.m., describing the fire as a 2-alarm blaze. Palm trees and pool cabanas were damaged in the fire, Baker said. The building suffered minimal damage.
Visitors to the Las Vegas Strip captured photos of the smoke rising over nearby hotels. Fire officials said artificial palm trees and foliage in the pool area helped the flames spread quickly.
The flames appeared to be out before 1 p.m. Investigators are reviewing surveillance videos and interviewing guests to determine the cause of the fire, Baker said.
