KINGSTON, Okla. (KTEN) — Just hours after cutting the ribbon, first responders were called to the new West Bay Casino and Resort on Lake Texoma.

Smoke and ash were reported inside the Players Club room.

The Chickasaw Nation explained what happened in a statement released Tuesday evening:

"First responders and maintenance crews discovered combustible material in the ventilation system was the source of the smoke. After the small flame was extinguished, first responders and maintenance crews inspected the facility and gave the all clear about 6:15."
