TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

A small fire damaged two rooms Sunday afternoon at the Grand Suites hotel in Tampa.

According to a Tampa Fire Rescue report crews were dispatched to 11310 N. 30th St. just after noon in response to a fire call. When they arrived at the large, three-story structure there were no visible signs of any problems in the hotel.

Firefighters entered the building and were told by evacuating patrons that there was a fire located in a second floor unit. The blaze was in the wall between two adjacent rooms investigators say.

The crews quickly made entry into the courtyard where they gained access into an internal room. Firefighters forced their way into the room where the fire originated because it was unoccupied.

The adjacent room was occupied but was evacuated prior to crews arriving on scene. Firefighters were met with smoke and quickly extinguished the blaze.

The two rooms suffered minor fire, smoke and water damage. There were no injuries and the damage was contained to the two rooms. The cause has been ruled accidental.
