A fire broke out at Brickell City Centre’s newly opened East, Miami hotel earlier today.

The fire started shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday with reports rolling in about smoke and flames billowing from a balcony on the ninth floor.

According to a spokesperson for Brickell City Centre’s developer Swire Properties, a small generator caught fire on a balcony and the flames remained outside the hotel.

Firefighters have since extinguished the fire,  and a Swire spokesperson told The Real Deal that there were no reported injuries.

“Following advice from the fire department and building security, guests and staff have since returned to the hotel, which is fully operational,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “The investigation is ongoing.”

The 40-story East, Miami hotel is a major piece of Swire’s $1.05 billion Brickell City Centre mixed-use development, which is nearing completion this November. The hotel opened in late May at 788 Brickell Plaza and features 352 rooms, two restaurants including one on the roof, and 20,000 square feet of event space.

Besides East, the development will have a 500,000-square-foot retail component, two mid-rise offices buildings and two condo towers with 390 units each. So far, the Three Brickell City Centre office building opened its doors in February, while the Reach condo tower began recording transactions in April. Its sister building Rise is set to follow suit this summer.
