First and foremost, i am glad that there were no reported injuries and everybody is safe. Todd Brunson's tweet was very funny and he wasn't going anywhere when there is still money to be won!!

Hehe Todd Brunson is brave poker player who can risk having his skin roasted until there is some money that can be won Tongue
I don't think this was a big fire, so nothing major here, no twin towers are falling, no bug fire, no victims, no explosion, so just some guy forgot fish cooking

World famous indeed.
If you are talking about famous casinos all over the world then you know this one for sure.
A couple of films were also shot there.

Good thing there were no injuries. In establishments like that things can get out of control way too fast.

Wow this fire in the picture looks quite scary, glad to hear that fire brigade was quickly doing their job and with plenty of effort put into it they managed to extinguish the fire with no casualties. Lol at Brunson, brave guy indeed, hope it was worth for him to stay...

The fire is eliminated 19 minutes after the signal? ... this is a very good job firefighters and you can admire them ... or maybe the fire was very small and it was quickly eliminated and there are no damages ... in any case, firefighters done well

well what can i say, this las vegas is always trying to impress it's customers, when they run out of ideas, you know the usual tigers, big boobed babes with tigers, popstars with tigers, illusionists with tigers and so on they just put a casino on fire, just because. and this way you do not need tigers.

The fire started on a portion of the roof that doesn't have immediate access. A witness said that a debris was flying into the fountain of Bellagio. I assume that some parts of the roof and facade are made of styrofoam and the winds were fueling the flames. It's a relief that there were no casualties or injuries in the incident.

now i am sure i am a bad woman even thinking about this, let alone writing Tongue but i think if there were no casualties a lot of people would have nothing against if the whole casino was burned down Evil especially guys who left more money than they planned there Blink

It seems that a player was on fire last thursday at the tables Big Smile Perhaps he had a good run and than the table are burning with all chips... But i hope the Bellagio ca reopen verry fast, because it was a famous Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

19 minutes for the fire service to extinguish a fire? Teeny weeny fire in a tricky location. I'm wondering whether the news was the fire or mr Brunson being in the building at the same time. I wonder if the news would have included that Monsieur PINOTTE or the DEMODAWGGY was in the building at the time?

Maybe this fire was a cover for some cunning scam ?? ... it is quite possible to find something to distract the attention of people and make a deception .... it is quite possible, but probably if it was, we'll never know about it

well i used my brainz to think of this word an a bit of autocorrect help, i wanted to say ninja poop, but it was auto corrected to nincompoop, have no idea what this means either, just like those siegfrieds and or roys of this world. sorry bout that, you just have to accept the fact that there are lots of uneducated people on this forum.

I haven't seen pictures of how devastated the hotel/casino was so it's hard to tell how big the fire was. The desert wind and dry air sure must have helped the fire burn if it was on the roof of this very tall building. Good to know the firefighters were able to put the fire out and that no one was harmed.

I'm sure they have insurances and more than enough money to rebuild now Blink
