Trump Plaza Hotel Casino on the Atlantic City Boardwalk has shut down until air conditioning service can be restored, possibly by Monday.

Trump Plaza and Caesars Atlantic City have been without air conditioning since early Thursday morning.

Trump Entertainment Resorts spokesman Tom Hickey said it was just too hot inside the building to continue to ask guests and employees to suffer through it. He said the casino was closed Friday and guests at the 906-room hotel were being transferred to two other casinos the company owns in Atlantic City.

Friday's afternoon high was expected to reach 84 degrees.

A Caesars spokesman said there were no current plans to close that casino.
