County Orders Fire-Damaged Casino Torn Down

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- Clark County building inspectors have ordered the Key Largo Casino be demolished by April 26.

The property was heavily damaged by a four-alarm fire Thursday afternoon. It took firefighters from three jurisdictions several hours to get it under control.

In a document known as a notice and order, the Building Department ordered Flamingo 2005 LLC, the corporation which currently owns the property, to get a demolition permit before April 12.

It must also remove or stabilize the north wall of the casino and secure against people getting into the building.

The property was shut down in 2005. Originally it was going to be torn down to make way for a high-rise hotel and condominium project, which never materialized.
