Mountaineer Inn Fire

Updated: Tuesday, December 18 2012, 07:38 AM EST

A fire breaks out at a historic Tunnel Road motel Monday night. Firefighters say the attic of Mountaineer Inn caught fire just after 7 p.m. Several rooms were damaged, but no injuries were reported. 

When fire crews arrived on scene they witnessed a lot of smoke coming from the attic of the building. Guests staying at the motel say not only could they see the smoke, they also saw fire coming from the roof of the building.

Guests were evacuated, but the flames only affected three unoccupied rooms. Guests staying in other buildings were allowed to go back to their rooms.

Officials say the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
