The Red Cross is assisted the 20 people displaced after the fire. 

No serious injuries were been reported, but one dog was unaccounted for.

Investigators say the fire started on a balcony on the opposite side of the building. The fire has been ruled accidental, as a result of discarded smoking materials on the balcony.

The estimated loss is about $3 million.

The Days Inn was also evacuated nearby because of all the smoke.
