Fire officials say three Caesars Palace hotel workers were taken to the hospital after a fire led to the evacuation of the Las Vegas Strip property early Monday. The Clark County Fire Department says the fire reported about 3:30 a.m. came from the top of an escalator and spread to curtains. Smoke swept from a ballroom area into the casino, prompting the evacuation at nearby shops and parts of the Palace Tower rooms. Three hotel workers suffered smoke inhalation. It took about 25 minutes to contain the fire and the evacuation has been lifted. A Caesars spokeswoman didn’t immediately have comment.
