Fire causes temporary evacuation at Waterloo hotel

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- An early morning fire caused a temporary evacuation at a hotel in downtown Waterloo Friday morning.

It happened at the Quality Inn & Suites on Jefferson Street.  Fire crews got the rescue call just before 6:00 a.m.

Crews say an exhaust fan sparked the fire, filling parts of the hotel with smoke.

Workers temporarily cleared the hotel while fire crews checked everything out.

The hotel should be back to business as usual soon.

But workers say the hotel, on its own precaution, is not taking any new reservations until an investigation is finished.
