Early Friday morning, crews responded to the Hampton Inn at 20 Phoenix Ave., for a fire in a laundry room. Firefighters from Shaker Pines, Hazardville, North Thompsonville and Thompsonville responded to the scene, Richards said.
“Crews encountered flames in a commercial laundry dryer. The fire spread outside the machine, causing the activation of the automatic sprinkler system, which contained the fire,” Richards said.
The inn was evacuated while crews removed smoke from the five-story building. There were no injuries and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
