HOTEL guests at Legoland were evacuated in the early hours of the morning after a fire scare.
Firefighters were called to the Winkfield Road theme park at 1.57am on Sunday.
A fire had broke out in a storage area behind the leisure facilities at the hotel.
Crew from Windsor and Slough fire stations attended and the fire was put out within minutes.
Hotel customers were ferried to a nearby service building, where they were reassured and given drinks, before returning to rooms within the hour.
A Legoland spokeswoman said: "The health and safety of guests and employees was never at risk, but their welfare is always our primary concern and, purely as a precaution, guests were evacuated to a nearby service building where staff were on hand to reassure and provide drinks."
An investigation to determine the cause of the blaze has been launched. Staff have apologised to guests for the inconvenience.
Fire crew left the scene at 2.27am.
