Hotel evacuated for short time after transformer fire

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- The Chattanooga Fire Department evacuated around 100 people from a Holiday Inn Express because of a transformer fire.

The fire happened around 8:45 pm Tuesday at the Holiday Inn Express on Hixson Pike.

About 100 people staying and working at the hotel were evacuated for about 15 minutes.

The transformer is apparently leaking. Electric Power Board workers are on the scene and say that power will be shut down for a couple of hours until repairs can be made.
