A fire forced evacuations at a Fresno hotel Saturday.

Officials said embers from some burning bushes spread to the roof of a hotel near Dakota and Blackstone. It is a wood shake roof, so crews had to remove sections of it to check for any hot spots.

Visitors were evacuated until authorities determined it was safe enough for them to return.
