VALLEJO, Calif. – VALLEJO A fire that destroyed sixteen units at the Travel Inn in Vallejo Sun morning started in a downstairs unit, but the cause is still under investigation, a Vallejo Fire Department engineer said.

The fire spread from unit 131 to the unit above where many gallons of gasoline were stored on the balcony, Engineer Kevin Brown said.

That helped to rapidly spread the fire, Brown said.

Vallejo firefighters who participated in a training drill at the Travel Inn at 160 Lincoln Road East 3 weeks before responded to Sunday’s fire, Brown said.

Firefighters also found some not covered electrical wiring and damaged fire extinguisher cabinets, Brown said.
