Around 7:00 p.m. Sunday evening, the Springfield Fire Department responded to the Hilton Garden Inn on West Columbus Ave. after a short in electrical wiring caused smoke to sound an alarm.
While there was an emergency evacuation, no injuries were reported.
Hotel management told Western Mass News that while the elevators are not yet back in service yet, "everything should be restored soon."
