No one was injured Thursday morning when a vacant motel caught fire north of the Las Vegas Strip.
Firefighters responded just before 2 a.m. Thursday to the Tod Motor Motel, 1508 Las Vegas Boulevard South, according to Las Vegas Fire Department spokesman Tim Szymanski.
The fire started in one of the rooms on the second floor of the vacant three-story motel, Szymanski said, and no one was injured.
Szymanski said the motel has been vacant for several years and is often used by squatters. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
Firefighters have been to the motel several times, Szymanski said. The last fire was on Oct. 22, and may have been caused by squatters.
