Officials say one person has been transported to a hospital, but they did not say why.
Baker says crews are handling evacuations of the hotel and checking for any other damage.
Baker says the fire started at an outside pool area, setting pool cabanas and trees ablaze.
The cause of the fire has not been determined. Emergency vehicles were called to the resort shortly after noon.
Heavy smoke was visible to people walking along the Strip.
