Firefighters and police responded at 10:30 a.m to a small fire set by a man on Saturday on the third floor the Marriott Hotel at the ‘L.A. Live’ center, according to CBS Local.

Said Erik Scott, spokesman for the Los Angeles City Fire Department, tirefighters were dispatched to the 900 block of West Olympic Boulevard and quickly put out the mini blaze. Police were also dispatched to the scene but it was unclear if any arrests were made.

After about ten minutes, firefighters were given the all-clear by police to re-enter the building and remove a small amount of lingering smoke, fire dispatchers said.
