UPDATE: David Taffet reports that officials with the Dallas Hilton Hotel report that “an issue in the boiler room” set of fire alarms in the hotel, prompting the evacuation of the facility. But only briefly.

He said that fire trucks from the Cedar Springs fire station came to the hotel, but left again shortly afterward, and that the several hundred people — including many attending the Out & Equal Conference — who had been evacuated have no returned to the building.


UPDATE:David Taffet reports that fire trucks are arriving at the hotel, but people are being allowed back into the building.

Still no word on why the facility was evacuated.
