Smoke causes heavy emergency response at Las Vegas Strip casino

Smoke coming from a mechanical room at a Strip resort prompted a heavy emergency response Saturday morning.

The Clark County Fire Department responded to smoke alarms about 10:20 a.m. inside a mezzanine-level mechanical room at New York-New York, 3790 Las Vegas Blvd. South. When firefighters entered the room, they found smoke coming from hydraulic oil spilling onto a hot elevator motor, the department said.

No one was injured during the incident.

The “severe” response included at least four engines, two trucks, four rescues, one squad and two battalion chiefs, the department said.
