Tourists Thought Bellagio Fire was Part of Fountain Show

Tourists watched in glee the fire dancing on top of the Bellagio and even a few applauded the new part of the show. Unfortunately, it wasn’t part of the show, and according to the the Associated Press, they only “realized something was wrong when plastic-smelling smoke began billowing and police rushed to evacuate shop employees. Fire engines arrived and melting building material began dripping fireballs toward the fountain lake, he said.”

Assistant Fire Chief Larry D. Haydu said in a statement that the location of the fire made access difficult but it was knocked down in under an hour.

According to KNTV: “A spokesperson for the fire department said during a media briefing that the cause of the fire has yet to be determined. However, investigators are looking at the electrical and lighting systems. The fire department is estimating damage between $400,000 and $500,000. A contributing factor to this estimation is the difficulty of accessing the location where the damage occurred.”
