Smoke engulfs the Las Vegas skyline as the Monte Carlo burned for about an hour Friday, Jan. 25, 2008. Las Vegas and Clark County firefighters were able to contain the three-alarm fire that touched off on the top floors of the 32-story resort. At least seven people were injured in the nearly full 3,002-room hotel — the 13th largest in Las Vegas.

  1. Within two hours the bandwidth was maxing out on all local media web pages. More criminals are more organized than the public. Hundreds of businesses are without fire suppression systems because they don't work. The life of a system in Las Vegas is 10 years. The public needs a better plan. I see thousands of safety violations daily in businesses. This is a good example of why companies should not hire illegal immigrants to do work of any kind. The language barrier could be fatal when seconds count. The fire department and EMS workers did a good job only because they were lucky this time. There is no excuse for health and safety violations anywhere in the USA.... Dr Doomsday
