According to the Lagoa Fire Department chief, no injuries were reported, and the evacuation order was merely a precautionary measure and to avoid cases of smoke inhalation.

 

Officials said the fire destroyed a parking garage alongside the hotel where 18 vehicles had been parked.

 


Six of the cars were completely destroyed along with a motorcycle, though the remaining vehicles were all damaged in the blaze.
