A MASSIVE FIRE broke out at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas yesterday.

According to a hostess at the Las Vegas hotel who just identified herself as “Jeanette,” a fire broke out in the bamboo hut on the 14th floor of the hotel, where one of the hotel’s pools is located.


A number of guests had to evacuate from the hotel.

According to Jeanette, the fire was allegedly caused when a fryer located near the bamboo hut caught ablaze, however the cause of the fire is still to be confirmed.

CNN reports that the fire has since been extinguished.

Las Vegas residents and onlookers immediately took to Twitter to document the fire.
