A small electrical fire in a hotel room at the Comfort Suites in Bluffton Saturday morning did minimal damage, according to Capt. Randy Hunter of the Bluffton Township Fire District.
Firefighters arrived at the hotel at 8:15 a.m. after occupants of a room reported a fire in an electrical outlet. As other residents of the hotel evacuated because of fire alarms, firefighters contained the blaze to the outlet with some minor burns on the walls, Hunter said. There were no injuries.
Hunter said firefighters are not sure what caused the electrical malfunction.
