Anderson County fire crews responded to a call around 2:50 p.m. that the Motel 6 just off the 122 exit on I-75 was on fire.
Firefighters say they do not believe there were any injuries, and that everyone was able to make it out of the building.
They say they are not sure how the first started, but they believe it was accidental and started outside the building.
An investigation is underway.
