ATLANTIC CITY - (AP) - The power is back on at Atlantic City's former Revel casino.

New owner Glenn Straub said electricity was restored to the Boardwalk resort at 8 a.m. Tuesday.

He reached a two-week deal with utility company ACR Energy for power to re-energize fire detection and suppression systems at the casino, which has been closed since September.

Atlantic City had been fining him $5,000 for each day the systems were inoperative.

Straub says the casino won't be ready to open by Memorial Day, but hopes at least part of it can be re-opened during the summer.

He says he still needs to decide whether to offer casino gambling there.

If he does, he says it will only be a small part of the property's attractions.
