Two people were injured and several guests were evacuated from Universal‘s Cabana Bay Resort on Tuesday morning, according to the Orlando Fire Department. Fire officials said a water heater ruptured and caused hot water to flood several rooms on the first floor of the hotel just after 4 a.m. Two guests were taken to Dr. Phillips Hospital with minor burns, officials said. The weight of the water also caused pieces of dry wall to collapse in a breezeway, fire officials said. No one was injured by the collapsed dry wall.
