Abandoned El Cid Hotel catches fire again in Downtown Las Vegas

The old and abandoned El Cid Hotel in downtown Las Vegas caught fire Monday morning. Fire officials say there were about 50 squatters inside the building at the time, but no one was hurt.

When firefighters arrived at the scene, there were flames shooting from the second-story almost reaching the third-story.

Las Vegas Fire & Rescue says they received several calls about the fire just before 9 a.m. This is the third fire at the building this month.

"One of the concerns we have is we don't know if we're going to get shot or stabbed. Because we'll find these people laying on the floor and you don't know if it's a victim. They might have weapons with them because those people are territorial. They don't want other people coming into their territory," said Tim Szymanski, Las Vegas Fire & Rescue... Read More

Core Arena brings western legacy back to downtown Las Vegas

A one-of-a-kind event center is now open downtown. It's a special space -- to ride high.

It's called the Core Arena, and it's right outside the Plaza Hotel. It's bringing the western legacy back to Las Vegas.

"Vegas is a western town, and it's good to see this kind of put back here in the heart of it," said Matt Shiozawa, professional rodeo cowboy.

It's country at it's core. The Core Arena at the Plaza Hotel is the first and only permanent outdoor equestrian center in downtown Las Vegas.

Shiozawa is a professional cowboy and in town for the 2018 National Finals Rodeo. The competition is taking place at the Thomas and Mack Center.

But Shiozowa says having a practice and stable space like the Core is long overdue.
