DETROIT (WJBK) -- An early morning fire at a Detroit motel has forced the evacuation of about two dozen people.

The Friday fire at the Victory Inns & Suites on the city's west side started in the attic or roof above one unit and spread quickly.

There were no reported injuries but about 24 people had to seek shelter elsewhere.

Fire officials say the blaze was quickly contained but many rooms suffered smoke damage.
