Fire erupts in Pooler hotel room

Posted: Updated:

An investigation into another fire at a Ramada Inn in Pooler is underway – it's one of several fires that occurred there in the last month.

Pooler Police Chief Wade Simmons said the fire happened in one of the rooms. He said no one was inside the room when it happened, but it was a room that was being rented.

Simmons said it was a small fire and part of the carpet was burned.  He says it was accidental and is not related to the arson fires. Pooler police are also investigating.

Earlier in January several arson fires occurred in the same day at the same hotel. Those fires are still being investigated. Police do not have anyone in in custody.
