    Monte Carlo in Vegas on fire
    Go to CNN

    If you don't have rooms for summit, book them today, and if you are at Monte Carlo, switch!

    And that would be me. Ugh. Just got off the phone with Priceline and they won't do anything until 24 hours before check-in.

    I'm going to make some backup reservations right now, then probably check with Monte Carlo sometime next week.

    There's live video on LasVegasNow.com. It looks like the fire is almost contained, and that it's mostly on the top with some spread down the top four floors or so in a couple spots.

    Local news in LA is saying fire involves outside facade only and has not penetrated to hotei interior.

    Scary stuff, though, in particular to us. A cousin of my wife's died in the 1980 MGM Grand fire. We lived about 6 blocks apart in LA at the time, but she was a fashion designer working on a Vegas show.

    Watching the live feed right now the firefighters are inside and looks like they have it under control. Whew! Could have been much worse. Hope no one was hurt.

    Looking better, at least no flames. They evacuated the Monte Carlo and NYNY next door.

    And of course, someone has ALREADY registered montecarlofire dot com. Jeeeze, nervy.
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    I got through to Monte Carlo reservations and they said that they would re-open on Monday. Even if that's overly optimistic, I suspect that things will be fine by next month.
