La Mesa Motel Destroyed in Early Morning Blaze

Fire erupted early Tuesday morning at a Rodeway Inn on Spring Street in La Mesa, just a few blocks from Interstate 8. Several dozen firefighters responded to an alarm just before 5 AM, and found a massive blaze when they arrived. There were no injuries reported as a result of the blaze, as guests escaped the building from each of the 17 occupied rooms before fire crews arrived on scene. There was abundant fire damage to the top floor of the two-story motel, which caused the roof to collapse. The bottom floor escaped fire damage, but sustained significant water damage. No word yet on what caused the blaze.
