Large fire at DeSoto Hotel
EPFD battling fire at DeSoto Hotel in Downtown
El Paso Fire Department firefighters responded to a blaze at a hotel in downtown El Paso.
EPFD officials say the fire broke out just before 5:30 p.m. Friday.
And a big fire full of lots and lots of smoke could be a theater for miles.
A KTSM producer based in downtown El Paso says the fire “appears to be growing.”
The name of the hotel in the fire is Hotel Del Soto and it is located at 300 E Mills Street.
There were no reports of injuries.
Firefighters are telling people to stay away, and hotel guests at the nearby Hotel Indigo have also been evacuated.
