PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A small electrical fire broke out in a hotel in Philadelphia, leading to evacuations but no injuries.

Embassy Suites guests were told to evacuate their rooms around 12:30 a.m. Monday.

They told WCAU-TV the elevators were out of service so they had to use the stairs to leave the 28-story building. Hotel staff handed out water.

It took firefighters about 25 minutes to bring the fire under control.
