Guests evacuated after hotel facade suddenly collapses

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Work crews will be busy Friday cleaning up the damage left behind after part of a local hotel building collapses.

Some guests at the Hampton Inn on Greenwood Street were evacuated overnight, after the hotel's facade suddenly collapsed.

Pieces littered the ground with debris, making a mess on the north side of the building.

People staying at the hotel said they heard a loud noise, grabbed their stuff and got out.

The facade tore down sprinkler lines, sending water rushing into some of the rooms. Three floors flooded, damaging the electrical system.

Guests were either moved to other rooms, or sent to other Hampton Inn locations.

Officials say city engineers will be evaluating the building's structural integrity.

No word what caused the collapse.
