WADSWORTH, OH (WOIO) -

The Wadsworth Fire Department was dispatched to the Legacy Inn & Suites around 8:30 a.m. on Saturday morning.


The motel, which is located at 810 High St., had four units burning when crews arrived.


According to fire officials, the fire began in a room where a guest was using an oxygen tank. At this time, it is unclear whether an issue with the tank contributed to the fire.  Guests in the motel say they heard loud bangs before the fire began.  

Although there is speculation among those staying at the motel that the use of fireworks may have played a role, the official cause of the fire is still under investigation.  

The blaze caused what looked like irreparable damage in three rooms.  A fourth was also damaged.

There were no injuries as a result of the fire.


The incident remains under investigation.
