Fire destroys motel without fire sprinklers

Garland -- Fifteen people who were staying at a Garland motel were displaced when a fire ignited.  There were no fire sprinklers and it destroyed the motel.

Garland firefighters responded to the fire at 1:20am.  Fire crews reported that eleven rooms and an office were damaged.  This caused the displacement of 15 lodgers.  The motel sustained extensive damage because there were no fire sprinklers to keep the fire contained until fire crews arrived.

"A fire actually occurred at the motel several years ago as well, but they decided not to rebuild that part of the building.  This time they're going to have to," said Garland Fire Captain Merill Balanciere.
