A three-alarm fire ripped through the Travelodge Inn and Suites on New Loudenville Road in the Town of Colonie, Village of Latham. Flames spread quickly briefly trapping occupants, but all made it out safely. Fire departments were called in for mutual aid from as far as Schenectady County, nine miles away. The cause of the fire was under investigation.
