TULSA, Okla. — A man is now in jail after setting a fire inside a hotel in downtown Tulsa over the weekend.

Tulsa firefighters say they responded to a fire at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel near 7th and Denver around midnight on Sunday morning. The fire broke out on the 14th floor in a linen closet.

People were evacuated from the hotel until crews could get the smoke out of the building.

Phillip Madaffari was arrested shortly after by fire marshals with charges of first-degree arson and tampering with fire alarms.
