MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities said there were no injuries but a hotel in the south Twin Cities metro suffered significant damage in a fire early Wednesday.

Crews were called to the Travelodge Hotel on the 10000 block of Aldrich Avenue South in Burnsville at about 12:30 a.m. on a report of a fire. When authorities arrived, one room on the second floor of the hotel had suffered heavy damage. A third alarm was called as the hotel has 41 rooms but does not have a sprinkler system.
