SCHENECTADY — Rivers Casino & Resort was evacuated for about an hour Sunday afternoon after a small kitchen fire.

Schenectady fire crews responded about 1:30 p.m. after a cooking fire at Mian restaurant set off the casino’s alarms and sprinkler systems, according to Deputy Fire Chief Don Mareno.


The casino was evacuated and patrons were able to return about 2:25 p.m.

“Operations are normal at Rivers Casino today, following a minor kitchen fire that was quickly resolved,” a Rivers spokesman said in an email.
