kinda odd to be able to sit at my desk at work and just watch a building burn. I feel like I need popcorn or something. freaky crap.

The "O" is gone, working on the "L"

The city, or the hotel?

Wow.

I hope everyone's safe, but I didn't like the building much. Much like the surrounding buildings, it's outdated.

I think the reporter just said "Beautiful" in describing the burning building. Odd...

Angry Deer, I thought the same thing, until I clicked on the link to discover it was a hotel in Las Vegas. Hope everyone was evacuated safely.

It's the Vegas hotel, not the city in Europe.

For those who aren't watching, it says that the firefighters are having a tough time getting to the fire, because of a thick, strong wall. The wall separates the roof from the facade and lower floors.

The reporter also says that the fire looks to have started in the air/heating ducts located on the roof.

The evacuees are being sent to neighboring hotels.

my fire fighter pal and someone who did work in that hotel said it looks like it could have been started in the elevator room....whatever that may mean

It looks like the fire may be dying. It doesn't look as bad as it did earlier.

Another reporter with CNN said that there are no reported deaths and no accidents.

Thank God.

It looks like it's still burning at the two ends but the biggest part - in the middle - is out.

I wonder if I could see the fire from my roof. I know, at night, I can see all the lights.

(For the record, I live north of the strip, in the hills.)
