Updated (12:49 a.m.): Arlington firefighters remained on the scene of the Days Inn at 3030 Columbia Pike shortly before 1 p.m. Monday following a fire that damaged two rooms.
Firefighters were dispatched at 11:36 a.m. Monday and arrived at the hotel about two minutes later, Lt. Sarah-Maria Marchegiani told Patch.
Once there, they saw heavy smoke from a second-floor room in the three-story hotel, she said. The room was unoccupied.
"It was fully involved, but it was just one unit, so they were able to put it out pretty quickly," Marchegiani said.
The fire was in Room 205 and the unit next door also sustained smoke damage, she said.
Investigators are working to determine a cause of the fire. A damage estimate was not immediately available.
No one was injured.
