Truck Catches Fire in Vegas Casino Garage


A fire that engulfed a pickup truck in the MGM Grand parking garage damaged two other vehicles before it was extinguished, fire officials said Tuesday.

Clark County and Las Vegas firefighters responded to the fire just after 10 a.m. on the third floor of the garage, on Tropicana Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard.

A total of 41 personnel responded to the fire, officials said.

Pictures released by the Clark County Fire Department show the smoke that poured from the garage and the charred remains of the pickup, a Ford F150.

Flames charred the sides of two vehicles parked next to the truck, but no one was hurt by the fire.

The fire was out within a few minutes. The property was not evacuated.
