No one was injured except for a guest who complained of a strained back and another with symptoms of stress, officials said.

The sprinkler system kept the 3 a.m. blaze in the artificial tree in check, and firefighters were able to quickly put it out, said Maria Sabol, a spokeswoman for the Anaheim Fire Department.

She called the fire "electrical in nature," saying it started after employees changed some lightbulbs on the tree and turned the lights back on.
