A fire broke out on Sunday evening outside the InterContinental San Francisco hotel in South of Market, fire officials said on Twitter.

Firefighters responded to the one-alarm blaze near the 888 Howard St. hotel at around 5 p.m., according to the San Francisco Fire Department. No injuries have been reported.

Fire officials said the fire was off the Fifth Street loading dock in between buildings in the area.

The SFFD told hotel guests to “follow hotel and fire staff directions” and urged the public to avoid the area.

Firefighters had extinguished the blaze by 5:44 p.m. though crews were still “working with hotel and building staff to ventilate residual smoke.”

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
