Rancho Cordova motel burns, again - Sacramento Bee (blog)

Sacramento Metropolitan Fire Department officials say that earlier fire damage to the Value Inn in Rancho Cordova was so extensive it was hard to tell whether Monday afternoon's fire actually resulted in any new damage to the troubled structure.

The fire, at 1:33 p.m., was the fifth fire at the 10271 Folsom Blvd. building in the last two years, said Michelle Eidam, a firefighter paramedic with the department.

There were no injuries as a result of the one-alarm fire at the building officially deemed inhabitable, but believed to be home to a number of squatters, Eidam said.

The city has been trying over the last two years to get the building demolished, said Rancho Cordova Vice Mayor Linda Budge. The location at the corner of Folsom and Mather Field and its proximity to transit makes it a site with "unlimited opportunity," she said.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it.
