Guests at the four-star Hotel Kompas in Dubrovnik had a rather rude awakening this morning as a fire broke out in a machine room meaning they had to be evacuated.
Three fire engines, with eleven fire-fighters were on the scene quickly as the fire was noticed at 7.55 in the engine room on the outside perimeter of the hotel.
Ten minutes after the alarm was raised the fire brigade was on the scene and the fire was extinguished within 15 minutes. Due to the large amount of smoke from the fire guests were evacuated for their safety. It is believed that the fire broke out in the electrical installations.
