Eau Claire (WQOW)- Hotel guests had to be evacuated Monday night when a fire broke out at the Best Western hotel along Mondovi Road in Eau Claire.
The fire started in the hotel's kitchen around 10 p.m. and everyone was evacuated from the building.
Just before 11 o'clock Eau Claire's fire chief said flames were out and guests were being allowed back into the hotel. Fans were set up to help clear out smoke. The kitchen did sustain smoke and water damage.
It's not clear yet how the fire started. The fire chief says one fire fighter was treated for a minor laceration injury.
