A fire of still unknown cause broke out at one of the rooms of Capital Hotel in Garapan on Saturday at noon.
No one was reported injured during the blaze, according to Department of Fire and Emergency Medical Services spokesman Derek Gersonde yesterday.
Gersonde said DFEMS received a call from the Department of Public Safety’s dispatch about a fire at a hotel in Garapan on Saturday at 12:16pm.
Firefighters and medics from Susupe and Garapan Fire Stations responded. The fire was placed under control at 12:34pm on that same day.
Investigators found that the fire started from the vent in the restroom in one of the rooms located on the first floor.
The restroom sustained severe heat and smoke damage, while the bedroom had moderate heat and smoke damage.
Gersonde said the affected room had guest/s at that time.
Gersonde said investigators are conducting further investigation to determine the cause of fire.

Emergency medical technicians treated the child for minor injury to his finger at the scene.
