Crews made quick work of a vehicle fire just before dawn on Wednesday morning outside a south-side motel.

The vehicle fire was reported around 6:30 a.m. in the north parking lot of the Travelers Inn, 3846 S.W. Topeka Blvd.

Officials at the scene said the fire damaged a red Dodge Durango sport utility vehicle that was parked along the north fenceline, about 30 feet from the motel building.

The fire was extinquished quickly, and most of the damage appeared to be to the interior of the vehicle.

A Topeka Police Department officer responded to the scene, and fire crews continued to extinguish the vehicle fire around 7 a.m. to ensure it didn’t flare up again.

There was no immediate word on what caused the blaze, which remains under investigation.

No injuries were reported.
