Fire at OKC Motel: Evacuation, No Injuries (Jan 31, 2013)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A three-alarm fire heavily damaged several rooms of a Super 8 motel in Oklahoma City early Thursday, but there were no serious injuries and guests safely evacuated, authorities said.

Fire Chief Marc Woodard told The Associated Press that more than 50 firefighters battled the blaze from the first call just before 3 a.m. Thursday, adding lodgers had left on their own once the fire began at the motel on an Interstate 35 service road.

He said the motel, with several dozen rooms, appeared about half full at the time.

Woodard says the fire appeared suspicious but he declined to elaborate, saying he didn't want to compromise the investigation of fire officials who had gone to the site after the fire was put out.
