No injuries were reported after fire broke out at a hotel in Henrico County early Thursday morning.
Firefighters were called to the Days Inn at 5701 Chamberlayne Road just before 3 a.m. for reports of a fire. Crews found smoke coming from the end of the building and determined the fire was contained to an outside stairwell.
The fire was marked under control in less than 30 minutes.
Metal cutting work earlier in the day is thought to be what sparked the fire.
