On July 25, 2015, a fire erupted on the 14th floor pool deck of the Cosmopolitan Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. The fire was reported approximately 12:15pm and was extinguished in about 30 minutes.
The fire torched artificial trees and cabanas at the Bamboo Pool on the west side of the hotel, but made little impact inside the building. Large plumes of thick black smoke ccould be seen from all parts of the valley. All 3000 guests where evacuated from the hotel. Two people were treated for smoke inhalation. One of those patients , one was transported to the hospital.
Inspectors were not able to find conclusive evidence of what caused the fire at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas pool on that day in July, but evidence points to cigarette butts dropped, perhaps, from one of the balconies above the pool area.
The fire resulted in damage, a couple of minor injuries, but no deaths. Estimation of damages was $2 million dollars.
