Another fire caused a temporary evacuation from parts of the Rivers Casino in Des Plaines late Sunday night.

Firefighters from several departments responded. They used extension ladders to gain access to the roof and put the fire out amid the freezing conditions.

The small fire began in the kitchen of Hugo's Frog Bar restaurant on the property, according to casino officials.

Nobody was hurt.
