Motel Fire Kills 4 Students

Four women are dead after getting trapped in their room during a motel fire in Alabama. The students from Mississippi University for Women were at the Days Inn in Hoover, Alabama, when the fire occurred. Although firefighters arrived on the scene after the women called 911, the firemen were unable to reach them because of the flames. "Half of the hotel was on fire," a fire department spokesman said. Officials have not revealed the source of the fire.
