Downtown Edmonton was quite the scene on Thursday (Apr. 27) night. 

A large grassfire ignited alongside the river valley and threatened two large hotels in the downtown core. 

Firefighters responded to the scene just after 9 p.m. after reports that the fire had ignited the patio at the Courtyard by Marriott hotel, which sits right beside the iconic Fairmont Hotel MacDonald. 

Employees inside the Courtyard were able to capture some terrifying footage as the blaze got closer to the hotel: 

Luckily, firefighters were able to get the fire under control and no injuries were reported.
