Firefighters battled a significant fire Monday morning at the Jayhawk Motel in North Lawrence.

Emergency responders were called to the motel, 1004 N. Third St., at 8:21 a.m., Lawrence Douglas County Fire-Medical Chief Mark Bradford said.

Initial reports on emergency radio traffic indicated that flames and heavy smoke were coming from windows and the roof of the building.

Firefighters had the flames under control as of 9 a.m., Bradford said, and no injuries were reported.

The fire was contained to the offices and residence of the motel’s operators and was not in the motel’s guest rooms, Bradford said.
