The Clark County Fire Department Tuesday responded to a fire in the elevator shaft of a south Las Vegas Valley hotel.

At around 2:20 a.m., crews arrived at the DoubleTree Hotel, near Warm Springs Road and the 215 Beltway, and saw smoke coming from the building, according to Deputy Fire Chief Steven DePue.

The fire was contained to the elevator shaft and it was extinguished before there was any extension to the rest of the building.

DePue said no one was injured and the hotel remained open. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
