No injuries after fire breaks out at Tampa motel

Hillsborough County

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – No one was injured after a fire broke out at a motel in Tampa overnight.

Guests had already evacuated by the time the Tampa Fire Rescue responded to the Swann Motel, 6407 North Nebraska Ave., shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Firefighters said heavy smoke was coming from one side of the motel and that the fire likely started in the attic.

The fire was upgraded to a second alarm due to the risk of it extending to nearby structures.

Investigators suspect the fire may have been caused by an electrical malfunction.

The incident remains under investigation.
