NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Authorities say nobody was injured in a fire sparked overnight at a hotel in New Orleans.

NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports The Olivier (oh-LIV-ee-ay) House Hotel was evacuated in the city’s famous French Quarter as firefighters arrived at 12:04 a.m. Monday. The blaze engulfed the rear of the three-story hotel.

A statement by the New Orleans Fire Department said 63 firefighters were called in to battle the blaze and keep flames from spreading to nearby buildings. It took them more than two hours to bring the fire under control.

Authorities are investigating to determine the cause of the fire.


This story has been corrected to show the hotel’s name is the Olivier House, not the Oliver House.
