Chico firefighters battled an overnight blaze at an abandoned hotel.
Firefighters responded to a call just after 11 p.m. last night at the Regal Inn on Esplanade.
Crews were able to quickly put out the fire and keep it from spreading.
The fire posed an exposure problem to neighboring businesses.
Since the rooms at the regal inn are easily accessible, there has been a transient problem.
This is the inn's third fire this year.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
