Fire and Water Damage Cleanup Efforts Continue at the Monte Carlo


LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – The Monte Carlo Hotel in Las Vegas reopened in time for President’s Day weekend at just over a third of its room capacity. The casino-hotel was closed on Jan. 25 when a fire broke out on the rooftop, forcing an evacuation of the 3,000-room building. Approximately 500 rooms will be out of service while undergoing more extensive redesign. American Environmental Group (AEG) has been selected by the largest remediation company in the US to assist in the remediation efforts at the Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino.

Hundreds of contract workers were deployed to the Monte Carlo to repair rooms and floors damaged by a fire of the top two levels of the 32-story hotel. “American Environmental Group is very excited to assist with project management to ensure a complete and speedy indoor environmental recovery for the Monte Carlo hotel,” said Jay Barkley of American Environmental Group. "Our goal is to help assess the related water damage so that the remediation activities can be completed as quickly and effectively as possible,” Barkley said. Dr. Kenneth A Thornburgh, a principal and Executive Vice President of AEG and veteran of hurricane Katrina cleanup will oversee AEG’s efforts at the Monte Carlo hotel and casino.

The fire started on the roof, and sent burning debris falling on to the Las Vegas Strip. Over 100 firefighters responded to the blaze. The cause of the Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino fire is still under investigation, but officials said welders working on the roof of the building Friday morning may have played a role in igniting the blaze.

US casino operator MGM Mirage Inc. has estimated that the repair costs and lost business from the January fire at its Monte Carlo casino will be around the $100 million mark.
