“Our people came in and they traced the fire up the ductwork to the roof and made sure the fire didn’t extend out of it,” Fornell said. “So it was a win-win for everybody. Damage was minimized — stuff like this happens every once and a while.”
There were no reports of any injuries. People were seen going into and out of the casino even as fire crews remained on the scene.MORE NEWS: Michigan Lottery Results For Tuesday, March 2, 2021
