St. Louis--About 1,000 people were evacuated from Harrah's St. Louis Casino and Hotel this morning after a fire started inside an exterior wall.
Pattonville Fire Department Battalion Chief Robert Murray told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the casino called around 9 a.m. saying smoke was filling a stairwell. The fire broke through the building's outer wall and was quickly extinguished by a crew waiting outside, Murray said.
Hotel senior vice president and general manager Michael St. Pierre said he didn't yet have an estimate of damage and no one was injured.
