AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - Amarillo Fire Department crews were dispatched to the Courtyard by Marriot hotel at 724 S. Polk Street, on a reported “Structure Fire”, according to AFD.

A second alarm was dispatched due to the possibility of a high occupancy, eight fire units responded.

The first unit arrived at 7:50 a.m. and found the lobby filled with smoke.

Crews then assessed the roof to check for damaged HVAC units, while more crews searched for any damaged lighting ballasts and cleared all the floors of the hotel.

The smoke cleared from the building and a source was not found.

Fire crews remained on scene for over an hour trying to find a possible source of the smoke.
