Fire damages FdL hotel

A fire damaged a hotel along Highway 41 in Fond du Lac this morning.

Housekeeping crews at the Comfort Inn spotted the fire on the first floor, by the entrance to the pool area.

Tina Fugate was working, and she says they started smelling smoke, and then they saw flames. She's a firefighter and EMT for the Campbellsport department, and she says she knew it was too big to put out with a fire extinguisher.

Firefighters were able to contain the damage to a back entryway, and some rooms in that area.

The hotel was evacuated. Two people were treated at a hospital for smoke inhalation.
