HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire fire officials say a fire at a motel has left nine people displaced.

Hampton Fire Captain Michael McMahon says the department received a call about a one-alarm fire at a motel in Hampton Beach on Thursday morning.

Firefighters arrived at the scene of the 10-unit Pelham Court motel to flames coming from a room on the second floor.

It took firefighters less than an hour to extinguish the fire in the room and the flames that had spread into the attic.

The Boston Globe reports the people staying at the motel were displaced because of the water damage throughout the building.

McMahon says there were no injuries and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
