Pasco motel catches fire

Posted: Updated:

Pasco, WA- No one was living at the Airport motel in Pasco when it caught fire this morning.

The motel is closed for remodeling.

Because of the size of the building, Franklin County Fire Chief in District Three Les Litzenberger says he called in extra help from Kennewick, Richland, and Walla Walla County.

"Any time you have this kind of structure you need more people than we have on staff. That's why initially you start calling for help right off the bat"

Firefighters say fire and water damaged four rooms on the upper level.

Firefighters don't know what started the fire.
