Motel blaze sparks fire investigation

FIRE investigators will be deployed to Roma today, following a fire in a local motel room overnight.

About 5.50pm two crews responded to a call at the Motel Carnarvon, where smoke was coming out of a room, and not long after 6pm they had fully extinguished the fire.

Firefighters remained on scene to conduct atmospheric testing to ensure the room was safe.

A Queensland Fire and Emergency Service spokeswoman said initial observations from the crews on scene indicated the fire may have started in an airconditioning unit, but fire investigators have been asked to attend and confirm the cause.
