- Officials said about 150 people staying at a Cobb County hotel were displaced Saturday afternoon due to a massive fire.

Firefighters said Monday they are still trying to determine the cause of the blaze at Budgetel Extended Stay Hotel located at 2570 Cobb Parkway NW.

Officials said about 60 firefighters spent about two hours getting the fire under control. Everyone in the hotel was evacuated safely and there were no injuries.
