Firefighters said the damage from the fire was minimal, but the water from sprinklers and hoses caused flooding on the fourth floor and the lower floors as well.

Crews remained at the hotel after the fire was extinguished to help with evacuations and water cleanup.

No injuries were reported in the fire.
