Guests and employees evacuated the Comfort Inn, located in the 400 block of North Interstate 35 East Service Road, after the fire alarm sounded at about 1:21 p.m., according to Red Oak fire officials.

The source of the fire was located in a housekeeping room, officials said, and the internal fire sprinkler system contained the fire to that room.

Still, plenty of smoke and water damage remains throughout the building.

Red Oak police rerouted traffic from the service road onto I-35E while fire crews worked at the scene.
