Guam - Guam's 911 Center received an emergency call before 9pm of an explosion by the Tree Bar area at the Guam Hilton on Tumon Bay. There was a second call made to 911 of a report of another explosion on the third floor, but that turned out to be a false alarm.

Guam Homeland Security, the Guam Fire Department, the Guam Police Department, the FBI, and military officials were on the scene. According to GPD spokesperson Sergeant Liz Flickenger, the damage was excessive and the explosion occurred during a dinner show at the Tree Bar.

Currently, the hotel has evacuated, and guests are standing outside waiting for the all-clear. Others have been offered to stay down the road at the Pacific Islands Club.

Two people were injured during the event - one local female and one Japanese man, both of whom are in their 30s.
