Fire forces evacuation of Tempe Hotel

A big scare overnight for people staying at a hotel in Tempe, when a fire breaks out.

The fire started in the laundry room, in this hotel on Apache Trail in Tempe. But what really helped firefighters keep this fire under control was a fire wall separating the laundry room from the rest of the hotel.

Because there were guests staying at the hotel, dozens of firefighters were called to the scene.

They managed to put the fire out quickly, allowing evacuated guests to return shortly afterward.
