LAS VEGAS (AP) - A tractor-trailer rig crashed into a power box near the Las Vegas Strip, causing a fire that sent up a plume of black smoke, shut down the city’s monorail and stranded a handful of people in elevators in a nearby high-rise.

Clark County Fire Chief Greg Cassell says there no injuries from the Saturday afternoon incident.

Cassell says firefighters rescued six people who were stranded in four elevator cars in the Signature Towers due to a loss of power. Elevator service was later restored.

The crash occurred under the monorail. The monorail’s Twitter account said service was restored late Saturday afternoon.
