MGM GRAND FIRE: PICTURES
Fire alarms did not sound and guests were made aware of the emergency only after seeing smoke filling their rooms via the air vents.

Although over 200 firefighters arrived on the scene to rescue the hotel’s stranded patrons, evacuation efforts were complicated as fire department ladders could only reach nine floors of the 26-story hotel.

The deadliest fire in Nevada’s history broke out in the early morning of Friday, November 21, in The Deli restaurant on the main floor of the hote

Few people visiting Bally’s Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas remember today that the landmark establishment situated on the glittering Strip was one the site of Nevada’s most devastating fire that took the lives of more than 80 people.

The blaze broke out inside the establishment known at the time as MGM Grand Hotel and Casino early in the morning on November 21, 1980, taking the lives of 87 people and leaving some 650 others injures.

The first firefighters arrived on the scene to find desperate hotel guests breaking windows and attempting to escape with ropes made from blankets

 

The fire then smoldered for hours before entering a catwalk area above the casino and exploding through the ceiling.

Flames fueled by flammable furnishings, moldings and construction materials found in the casino then raced towards the main entrance, blowing through the doors in a huge fireball.

Not before long, flames and smoke had engulfed the building, leaving death and destruction in their wake. At the time of the incident, about 5,000 people were staying at the hotel, and it took first responders about four hours to evacuate the building.

The 26-story resort quickly filled with smoke as the fire spread, forcing trapped guests to await rescue from exterior balconies. About 300 people had to be airlifted from the roof via nine helicopters from Nellis Air Force Base, including two HH-53 'Jolly Green Giants.

Construction workers from C&E Concrete who were employed at the 760-room addition to the MGM Grand Hotel joined firefighters in battling the conflagration after seeing the flames ignite.
