There was a fire at the construction site of the Grand Lisboa Palace – the new casino-resort project of SJM Holdings Ltd in Cotai – last Friday evening, with authorities saying the incident likely involved foul play.
According to local broadcaster TDM English News, the fire broke out at a storage facility for paint and other construction materials of the project, and the situation was only brought under control two hours after the fire began.
A total of 522 people were evacuated from the construction site and no one was reported injured, said the news outlet.
Business Daily enquired of the casino operator as to whether the fire would affect the project’s construction progress, however no reply had been received from the company before this story went to print.
According to its annual results at February-end, SJM expects construction of the Grand Lisboa Palace to be completed by the end of this year, with the opening expected in the first half of next year.
