GRAND RAPIDS, Mich – Several crews from the Grand Rapids Fire Department have responded to The Warner Building in downtown Grand Rapids.

What appears to be a fire alarm could be heard coming from the new Hyatt Place hotel, which is directly adjacent to the 15-story Warner Building.

Fire officials on scene tell FOX17 they responded to reports of light smoke on the 9th floor of the Warner Building, where parts are still under construction as part of the nearby Hyatt Place’s construction.

Officials tell FOX 17 there was a heat pump failure that left minimal damage.

Nobody was hurt.
