The Reno Fire Department says a woman is being investigated in connection with Sunday's fire at the Lido Inn. They say she's already charged with starting several dumpster fires in that same area.

The fire started around 4:30 a.m. Sunday in an elevator.

Firefighters safely evacuated 25 people. Those evacuated were put in RTC buses for shelter.

Two others were taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation.

American Red Cross says they are assisting eight people as a result of the motel fire. The organization is providing a safe place to sleep, food, clothing, medication and other essentials for those displaced.
