    its out now

    no it isn't, update at 20:27

    "No injuries were reported and the building was evacuated, but the fire is proving difficult to put out as firefighters have to get to the roof.

    Firefighting teams are trying to determine if the flames have penetrated the interior of the top floors, which are filled with penthouse suites, or if the blaze is confined to the facade.

    There are reports of debris falling from the roof. The entire Las Vegas Strip has been shut to traffic and neighbouring hotels have also been evacuated. "

    omg that is awful

    yup, it is out, i was watching a stream from some us news channel, the firefighters were on the roof, and there were no flames and pretty much no smoke. il post link if i find it again

    And extremely expensive, closing the entire strip.

    The local G.A. venue must be overwhelmed.

    I hope there are no casualties.

    Is any one of you actually there ?

    Why is this such big news? I watched in disbelief when this was on the 10pm news. 50 people die on a bus in India and it barely is mentioned on the BBC site yet this gets primetime.

    Don't even get me started on the us elections - yawn - only another 9 months to go!

    rant over!

    '50 people die on a bus in India' is not an unusual event these days to be fair ....however, a huge hotel on fire on the las vegas strip isn't a regular occurence so no disbelief from me...:)
