    It's on TV at my house right now too. Crazy!

    I was in the Flamingo in Laughlin in October 2003 - and our first night there, the fire alarm went off........very disturbing..........false alarm, but still disturbing.........and maddening, since we'd repacked and were heading to the fire escape stairwells........

        As bad as it looks, it could be worse, at least it is on the upper floors which means more people will quickly evacuate. During the MGM fire unfortunately many people did not want to leave the casino and caused many emergency responders to have to physically remove people from the casino floor instead of being able to fight the fire. Hopefully there will be no loss of life and minimal injuries.

          Tell me about it! Scary indeed.

          Course, when we were @ Flamingo, we were on the 7th Floor........but still, one would go 'SPLAT' if they jumped out of that...

            when was that fire? was that the reason why they have a different entrance now?

                Actually the hotel had to be demolished. It is considered the 2nd worst hotel fire in American History and happened on 11.21.80, 84 persons died and 679 were injured. You can read the Clark County Fire Department report here:

                http://www.co.clark.nv.us/fire/ccfd_mgm.htm

                BTW they are saying that they do not thing anyone is trapped in the Monte Carlo - Yeah!

                              I am wondering if they will be open for business as usual (after they have their engineers check out any structural damage)
