TWO people were treated for possible smoke inhalation after a fire broke out in a restaurant of the Golden Horse Casino on Tuesday afternoon.

According to a statement by ER24, paramedics saw smoke coming from the casino around 4.30pm and immediately notified local authorities.

“The building was evacuated and the police were searching for anyone who might still be inside the building.

No injuries were reported and two people were privately transported to nearby doctors for possible smoke inhalation,” read the statement.

According to media reports when the fire broke out the sprinklers came on and they managed to control the blaze until firefighters arrived. It is believed that workers were told to wait outside until the firefighters finished. Other workers said they were told to report for work yesterday as usual.

The ER24 statement said the cause of the fire has not yet been determined, but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
