(LAS VEGAS) — Firefighters battled a blaze at The Cosmopolitan Hotel of Las Vegas on Saturday.

The Clark County Fire Department said at about 3:40 p.m. Saturday it was responding to the two-alarm fire. Photos posted to social media showed plumes of black smoke rising from the rooftop.

The fire was on the 14th floor pool deck, Clark County Assistant Fire Chief Sandra Baker told ABC News. Many artificial plants and trees and cabanas on the deck fueled the fire.

No one suffered burns and one person was taken to a hospital for smoke inhalation. Several floors were briefly evacuated due to smoke migration into the building, but all floors should be livable Saturday night.

The fire was put out in short order, and a statement from the hotel noted “no serious injuries.” The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

The CCFD said one person was transported from the scene.
