Clark County Fire responded to a burst water pipe at Mandalay Bay on the Las Vegas Strip Tuesday.
The main water line break spilled thousands of gallons of water on the first-floor convention level near the Shark Reef exhibit.
The CCFD responded by sending 6 engines, 1 truck, 2 rescues, the Heavy Rescue and two battalion chiefs.
It was determined that there was a water main break in the loading dock area that caused the leak.
Mandalay Bay released the following statement:
“A water leak at Mandalay Bay has affected a portion of the South Convention Center. Crews are working to clean up the leak as soon as possible. There are no injuries or major disruptions to operations.”
The water was secured; as was the electrical power in the area. Approximately 1000 people who were on the second floor of the convention center were relocated to other areas of the hotel as a precaution.
There was no report of any structural damage to the building. There also weren’t any injuries.
The water has been shut off, now clean up is under way.
There weren’t any other details released.
