Firefighters investigate fire at Mandalay Bay Hotel

LAS VEGAS - A fire broke out Thursday afternoon at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, fire officials said.

Clark County Fire and Rescue said around 3:45 p.m., firefighters received a call about a fire at the hotel located on the Strip at 3950 S. Las Vegas Blvd, so five engines, two trucks, two rescue crews, and two battalion chiefs arrived at the hotel to investigate.

When they arrived, crews received reports that there was a fire in a garbage chute on the 35th floor. Firefighters said there was a light haze of smoke showing from the laundry chute which stretched from the 35th floor to the 39th floor, but an active fire was never found.

Hotel workers used ventilation systems to remove the smoke from the hotel.  No one was hurt, and none of the hotel guests had to be evacuated.
