Faulty wiring sparked a fire inside an electrical box at the Tacoma Dome Hotel on Friday night, drawing a large response from the Tacoma Fire Department.
Firefighters were dispatched to the hotel about 7:30 p.m. after an alarm inside the building began sounding.
The first firefighters on the scene smelled smoke and called for more resources, the department reported. Hotel guests were asked to leave or gather in the lobby as fire crews searched for the source of the smoke.
They found it in a first-floor electrical box, where some wiring had caught fire.
The fire was quickly extinguished, and guests were allowed to return to their rooms about 8:15 p.m.
No one was hurt, and damage was minimal.
