WELCHES, OR (KPTV) -

A three-alarm fire ripped through hotel rooms at the Resort at the Mountain early Wednesday, forcing guests out of their rooms in the middle of the night.

The first calls about the fire came in shortly after 2 a.m.

Hoodland Fire D‏istrict Chief Mic Eby said one building was fully involved when he arrived on the scene.

As of 6:30 a.m., firefighters said the fire was under control and crews were spraying the building down to put out any hot spots.

There were no reports of any injuries.

One family said they awoke to smoke in their room and escaped via the balcony of their second-story room.

Guests who were staying in rooms damaged by the fire are being put up in other rooms at the hotel.

It wasn't immediately clear what might have caused the fire. The state fire marshal planned to be at the scene later Wednesday to investigate.
