Vacant Economy Inn motel burns


Beaumont Fire Rescue units responded to a structure fire reported at 3515 College, which is the location of the vacant Economy Inn.

When firefighters arrived, they found the building heavily involved with fire. Firefighters made a defensive attack and were able to control the fire with no injuries.

Witnesses said several transients were seen exiting the building before firefighters arrived. Some of those transients were interviewed by fire investigators.

The fire appears to have been caused by someone who had a fire to keep warm.
