(LAS VEGAS) — Saturday’s fire at the Bamboo Pool of The Cosmopolitan Hotel of Las Vegas is believed to have been accidental, officials say.

Fire investigators know where the fire started, they say, but they continue working Sunday to determine what sparked it. Clark County Assistant Fire Chief Sandra Baker said the blaze is believed to be accidental, and that the investigation could take about one week.

The pool was reopened on Sunday, but an area of the rooftop pool deck was walled off. Guest rooms on the 14th floor, the same floor as the pool deck, were closed Sunday.

No one was burned in Saturday’s fire, though two people were treated for smoke inhalation.
