Fire at the Monte Carlo Hotel - Vegas

  1. I don't want to scare anybody. We are very senstive to fires here cause of the MGM & Hilton.
    There's a 3 alarm fire at the Monte Carlo hotel. It looks like it started about 4 floors from the top & spread up up to the roof.
    So if anyone has reservations at that hotel you might want to change them.
     
  2. I have a close PF friend who is in Vegas right now. I just called her cell and left a message... waiting to hear back-- if I do, I'll post a report if it's ok with her
     
  3. I am flying to Vegas tonight. :s
     
  4. Any more news Vegas LL? Anyone else in the area that can report on this?

  12. Wow, I heard about that.
    I was there over the summer and took a lot of pics and we saw Lance Burton there.

  13. YES- she is and she JUST called me. They are not staying at the Monte Carlo but a lot of other women who are there for the tourney are. They had a game this morning and on the way over there they saw a bunch of fire trucks racing by. She said at this point I had more info than her, because they'd been on the ice all morning. She said to tell everyone hi!
