LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — No one was hurt after a fire broke out on Resorts World property.

It happened around 6 p.m. Saturday.

According to the Clark County Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief, it appears the fire was in a storage area that housed building materials and other mechanical equipment.

“We saw the fire at the building and there was smoke, and it took us around The Strip causing a 20 minute back up,” said visitor, Makayla Williams. 

“Looked like something had been burning for quite some time and all we saw was plumes of smoke in the sky,” added James Banks, visiting from Phoenix. 

Officials say it did not spread to any other structures.

The cause is unknown and under investigation.

A total of 38 CCFD personnel responded.
