On the evening of February 13th, local time, a fire broke out on the balcony of the 51st floor of The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas, USA.
Many people were admitted to the hospital with minor injuries.
At present, firefighters have put out the fire, the fire has not spread to other floors, and the cause of the fire is also under investigation.
The Metropolitan Hotel, which caused the fire, opened in 2010, adjacent to the famous Bellagio Hotel.
The 14th floor of the Metropolitan Hotel’s rooftop swimming pool area once suffered a fire in 2015 and caused more than $2 million in damage, while one guest was sent to hospital for excessive smoke inhalation.
For many years, many hotels on the Las Vegas Strip have been plagued by fire accidents.
In 1980, a serious fire broke out at the former MGM Grand Hotel (now the Barley Hotel), killing 87 people.
