The Roof Was On Fire -- At The Bellagio


This is some really good video. The roof of the famed Bellagio Hotel and Casino caught fire on Thursday night, prompting the closure of the Las Vegas Strip.

The Clark County Fire Department responded to the fire, which they said was difficult to access given its location, but that they had nonetheless managed to knock down the fire.

Luckily no one was hurt, and no evacuations were necessary, but can you imagine even trying to evacuate a property as large as the Bellagio? Where do you begin? I'm sure they have plans, but it seems like it would be a logistical nightmare! Any firefighters want to weigh in?
