LAS VEGAS (AP) — A fire reported at a high-rise hotel off the Las Vegas Strip turned out to be nothing more than a burning towel.
Clark County fire officials say five fire engines, two trucks and three rescue vehicles responded to the call at the Rio Hotel at 4:53 a.m. Tuesday.
Crews were directed to the 25th floor where they used a fire extinguisher to put out the small blaze.
Officials say they checked for smoke damage but didn't find any. No injuries were reported and no evacuations were necessary.
