Firefighters were called to the motel, at 3460 Hillsborough Road, shortly before 10:30 p.m., where they found heavy smoke pouring from the building to the roadway.

It's unclear where the fire started, but firefighters found a blaze in a breezeway on the first and second floors. Crews contained the blaze to the breezway area, and no room sustained any damage, Durham Fire Department officials said.
