While people visiting the city usually expect to see the dazzling water displays, they weren't banking on a fire show as well.

Emergency crews rushed to the site after a fire took hold on the south side of the hotel's lake on Thursday evening.

As a precaution, a section of the infamous Las Vegas strip was shut down.

The Las Vegas Review Journal reports that 77 emergency personnel responded to the fire with 10 fire engines, six rescue vehicles and two air resources on hand.
