A fire broke out Friday night at a vacant hotel in Santa Ana, the same hotel that has been burned in two other fires in as many years, firefighters said. The three-alarm fire happened at the Saddleback Inn at 1655 East First Street at 10:35 p.m, according to NBC.
The OC Fire Authority reported on their Twitter feed that the “Fire is upgraded to a 3rd Alarm. 75 firefighters on-scene. Defensive mode. Crews have a good handle on the fire.”
No one was at the Inn when the fire broke out. There have been three fires at this property in the last two years.

A fire such as this puts firefighters and the public in danger. The City should have condemned this complex as a public nuisance and danger a long time ago and ordered it to be torn down.
Place has been a dump for many years. Demo it now.
