No injuries reported during early morning fire at Bloomington hotel
Fire officials say no one was injured after a fire in a hotel room early Friday morning in Bloomington.
According to Bloomington Fire Deputy Chief Tim Barrett, crews were called to the Super 8 hotel off American Boulevard and Nicollet Avenue around 5 a.m. after heavy smoke was reported on the third floor.
When firefighters arrived, they found heavy smoke in the building, as well as a small fire inside of a room. The fire was then quickly extinguished.
Occupants who were on the first and second floor were let back in, however, those who were on the third floor were put on a bus to keep warm.
Barrett said no one was found inside the room where the fire broke out.
The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
