Three hospitalized after fire at Jackson hotel

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - A fire at the Studio 6 hotel near I-55 kept firefighters busy for more than an hour Sunday night.

Witnesses at the scene say a couch caught fire inside the hotel on East River Place and someone inside tried to put it out.

We were told two people were trapped inside but firefighters were able to get them out safely.

Our photographer saw three people being carted out on stretchers, with three ambulances at the scene.

A source within the fire department said one person was sent to CMMC's burn unit and two others were transported to UMMC with non life-threatening injuries.

The smoke could be seen billowing over the southbound lanes of I-55.

The Jackson Fire Department had six of its fire trucks on the property to fight the blaze.
