Las Vegas, NV (KXNT) - The rat pack ruled a part of the Las Vegas Strip on Thursday night, but it was hardly a welcomed act.

NV Energy says that rats were behind the prpoerty losing its power for a couple of hours on Thursday, The rodents got into a power transfer swith located off property, not on the grounds of the hotel itself,

The hotel lost power around 7:30pm. Both the Clark County Fire Department and Las Vegas Fire and Rescue assisted the Paris with evacuation of customers from the casino area. 

Guests in their hotel rooms were allowed to stay in place as NV Energy worked to restore power to the property.  CCFD units rescued multiple guests out of 6 separate elevators and checked all other elevators to make sure they were clear. 

None of the guests from the elevators required any medical attention. One person from the hotel was transported to the hospital for breathing difficulties.

The power was restored by NV Energy just before 10pm.
