WAUSAU (WKOW) -- More than two dozen people evacuated a Wausau hotel Saturday night after a fire broke out.

WAOW-TV reports the cause of the fire at Days Inn is still unknown. Crews continue investigating the scene Sunday.

Fire officials say the second floor of the hotel partially collapsed and flames were shooting from the roof when firefighters arrived. They battled the fire until about 5 a.m.

Police say some people were treated for smoke inhalation and the Red Cross helped to find places for people to stay at nearby hotels. No one was seriously hurt.
