Footage taken by scared onlookers shows the world famous luxury Las Vegas hotel, The Bellagio, engulfed in flame.


Emergency firefighting crews rushed to the Bellagio Hotel at 3600 S. Las Vegas Boulevard on Thursday night after a fire broke out on a roof of the complex.

The first alarm was raised and a second rang out as the firefighters battled the flame.

Clark County Fire Department confirmed the fire was eventually extinguished after crews had difficulties accessing the source.


Ten engines, four truck companies, six rescues, four battalion chiefs, one deputy chief and two air rescue units, totalling 77 personnel responded, reports Fox5.

“Firefighting efforts were extremely difficult due to the location of the fire and access to the location,” assistant fire chief Larry Haydu said.

Tourists seemed to see the funny side of the potentially dangerous incident, taking to Twitter to share their footage and photographs.

Thankfully, there were no reports of injuries and no cause has been determined.
