LAS VEGAS (AP) ? A fire on the roof of the Monte Carlo hotel-casino forced guests and gamblers to flee and sent a plume of smoke above the Las Vegas Strip before easing about an hour later, hotel officials said. No major injuries were reported, said Clark County spokesman Eric Pappa. The fire, which was reported around 11 a.m., halted gambling at the casino as it spread from the center of the building across the roof. Fiery debris fell to the street below, and orange flames lapped at the casino's script sign.

When Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. stepped onto the stage for the sixth season of "America's Got Talent," Frank Sinatra tunes weren't exactly what people expected him to sing. After all, Murphy, who stands 6 feet, 4 inches tall, is a black man who fashions his hair in long braids and speaks with a southern accent, thanks to his Logan, W.Va., upbringing. He might not be a stereotypical Sinatra-style performer - and that's exactly why Murphy walked away with the big prize. Murphy hopes to wow local audience members when he performs Friday, Oct. 26, at The Maryland Theatre in downtown Hagerstown.
