Fire forces guests out of Waterfront motel

Monday, Feb. 18, 2013, 12:01 a.m.
 

Fire in a clothes dryer caused a temporary evacuation of the Holiday Inn Express at the Waterfront on Sunday afternoon, authorities said.

The blaze was reported about 3:45 p.m. in the hotel in the 600 block of Waterfront Drive, on the Munhall side of the sprawling shopping complex, borough dispatchers said.

Guests were briefly evacuated as needed, but the flames were brought under control quickly and did not cause any severe damage.
