Econo Lodge Fire Doused Quickly

A fire in a room at the Econo Lodge and Conference Center is under investigation, a fire official said.

A fire that broke out around 2:30 Sunday afternoon in a room at the Econo Lodge and Conference Center in South Whitehall is under investigation, Woodlawn Fire Chief Rusty Held said.

The two-alarm fire drew Woodlawn, Greenawalds and Cetronia fire departments, as well as Tri-Clover and Whitehall fire departments.

Held said the fire was put out within minutes, as the hotel's maintenance crews had used fire extinguishers before the departments arrived.

No one was injured.

Held said the room was rented but no one was in it at the time.

The hotel is located at 1151 Bulldog Road, at Routes 309 and 22.

remember when this place was a Holiday Inn, now it is a rat infested low life hangout, a real eye sore to the entire community
