PORTAGE (WKZO) -- Portage Fire Marshall Larry Moore says it looks like carelessly handled smoking materials may have been responsible for a fire at the Holiday Motel last Thursday.

The fire destroyed several units at the 18-room motel at I-94 and Westnedge.

Apparently the investigation remains open and they are still awaiting some information or perhaps test results.

Several families that had been renting long term, were displaced by the fire.
