The Crowne Plaza hotel off Pfeiffer Road and Interstate 71 was briefly evacuated after light smoke was found on the second floor early Tuesday, fire officials said.

No immediate injuries were reported when crews responded just before 6 a.m., according to Hamilton County dispatchers.

Guests were permitted back inside after about 20 minutes. A security guard said the hotel was not damaged.

Firefighters determined a malfunctioning heating and cooling system was responsible for the smoke, dispatchers said.

Fire officials left the scene without talking to media and have not responded to requests for comment.
