The day after a fire sent the landscape and furniture of the pool at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas up in flames and injured two, the pool resumed full service with the exception of the West Bar on Sunday morning. The fire broke out at 12:15 PM on Saturday and was extinguished within 30 minutes.
The rooftop pool is located on the 14th floor and rooms on that floor remained closed. The 40,000 square-foot spa, fitness center and 15th floor of the resort all reopened. Videos posted on social media show plumes of black smoke near the 61-floor west tower where the Bamboo Pool is located.
Clark County Fire Chief Greg Cassell told CNN that the plastic used to construct the pool’s fake palm trees caused the fire to take “off like a rocket.”
No foul play is expected in the fire that sent one person to the hospital for smoke inhalation while another was treated on the scene. The fire department has launched an investigation to discover the cause of the fire.
The area affected by the fire has been walled off by the Clark County Fire Department, hotel officials said in a statement.
The Cosmopolitan has 2,995 rooms and is located just south of the the Bellagio on Las Vegas Boulevard. “The Cosmo” is home to the top grossing nightclub in the United States – Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub.
Las Vegas regulars and visitors have witnessed many fires and the resulting damage, including the following three most famous fires in Vegas’ history:
