JUST IN: Fire at former Key Bridge Marriott prompts large ACFD response

Roads are closed around the Key Bridge Marriott in Rosslyn after a fire in the vacant hotel.

Firefighters responded to the site at 1401 Langston Blvd around 8:30 p.m. and found fire on the fourth floor, according to ACFD.

The blaze was reported to be extinguished just after 9 p.m., though firefighters were still working to ventilate residual smoke and search the building.

Nearly a year ago, the discovery of a large number of squatters in the building prompted a large police response to the former hotel. Perimeter security was subsequently stepped up.

In November a security guard was charged after allegedly shooting a teen who was part of a group that was trespassing at the site.

A planned redevelopment of the hotel has been stalled due to financial problems at the California-based developer.

Update at 10:50 p.m.: The fire department has largely cleared the scene and roads have reopened.
