Ferocious Fire Breaks Out At Famous Las Vegas Resort [VIDEO]
A fire broke out today around 12:40pm PST on the 14th floor Bamboo Pool of the famous Las Vegas hotel The Cosmopolitan, sending a massive pillar of smoke into the air that dwarfed surrounding skyscrapers. The Clark County Fire Department announced they were fighting the fire after a second alarm was called in about an hour ago.
The fire department later tweeted that trees and cabanas on the 14th floor were set ablaze, but the flames were mostly contained and caused little damage to the rest of the building. At this point, only one person has been sent to the hospital and reported as injured.
The cause of the fire is unknown. Several Las Vegas citizens took to social media to post images of the burning building and the fire's aftermath.
