VIDEO: Large Fire At Michigan Hotel

(ERIE, MI) -- A fire is burning at the Silver Blue Motel in the 8200 block of S. Telegraph Rd. in Erie, Mich.

Flames are shooting out of the building. Firefighters are having trouble fighting the blaze because there are no hydrants in the area; they are calling for more tankers. They fear the fire will jump to nearby homes.

Early reports say one person has been injured and taken to a nearby hospital.

Investigators believe the owner was trying to turn on a boiler, which may have caused the fire.

Fire departments from Ida, Whiteford, Bedford, Morin Point, Luna Pier and LaSalle are on the scene.
