SALISBURY, Md.- The Best Western hotel at 1735 N. Salisbury Blvd. in Salisbury had to be evacuated Tuesday after a fire broke out in a utility room.

There were no reported injuries in the incident, which happened at around 8 a.m. Salisbury fire crews responded to the scene and got the situation under control soon thereafter. 

According to Amit B. Patel, the hotel's general manager, a fan malfunction in a utility room in the back building was to blame for the incident. Patel said the back building - which has dozens of rooms - is closed until further notice as per the Salisbury Fire Department's order.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office is investigating.
