An online fire at an Arizona airport has forced the evacuation of some of the city’s hotels, but officials say the blaze is under control.
The fire was reported at the airport at 8:15 a.m.
Sunday and it was under control by 1 p.m., the Phoenix Fire Department said.
The cause of the fire was under investigation, said Sgt. Steve Davis, a spokesman for the fire department.
The airport had about 500 employees when it reopened on Wednesday.
The fire damaged the hotel suites and the hotel-casino-like structure where guests stayed.
Davis said about 400 guests had been sent home.
The FAA issued a fire-warning for a fire on the airport property.
Airport spokeswoman Karen Crouch said in a statement that the FAA “will be monitoring the situation closely, including the status of the hotel and hotel-related structures.”
Airport officials had not yet announced any evacuations.
The Phoenix Fire District also reported that the hotel was still open and guests could check in.
