When it was first built, the MGM Grand Hotel was one of the first super resorts in Las Vegas. It was also one of the largest hotels in the world. Considering what a marvel it was, you can imagine the horror when smoke was seen billowing out from the hotel’s revolving doors on the morning of November 21, 1980. The MGM Grand Hotel fire claimed 85 lives, and countless others were injured. In this video, you will hear from former NFPA fire investigator Dave Demers about this historic fire. You will also hear first-hand account from survivors and personnel who witnessed the fire on that tragic morning 33 years ago.
