A fire led to an evacuation of a Lexington Hotel Friday evening.

It happened around 10 p.m. at the Clarion Hotel on Athens-Boonesboro Road, near Interstate 75.

Firefighters say the fire started around the pool and fitness area, but the sprinkler system kept it from spreading too far.

Firefighters say it caused minimal damage to the building. The hotel was evacuated but guests were allowed back inside shortly after.

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
