Seven people were injured during the evacuation of a Tampa hotel in Florida due to a fire incident.
The fire, which did not show visible flames, resulted in smoky conditions on two hotel floors.
Tampa Fire rescue quickly responded and extinguished the small fire, but precautionary measures led to the complete evacuation of the hotel.
The large size of the hotel and the number of guests necessitated the presence of multiple fire engines.
Seven individuals were transported to the hospital for medical attention, although the exact reasons for their injuries remain unknown.
Firefighters worked to remove smoke from the affected floors, and guests were eventually allowed to return to the hotel once the situation was under control.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, and the fire department dispatched 29 units to handle the incident due to the hotel’s size and the need to ensure the safety of all occupants.
The evacuation process was challenging, particularly for individuals with mobility issues, as they had to navigate several flights of stairs.
Despite the inconvenience caused by the incident, normalcy was gradually restored as guests resumed their morning routines.
