    Guests at a Midway hotel were displaced after a large section of the building collapsed overnight.

    Fire officials say the decorative facade on the Hampton Inn collapsed on the 3rd floor, tearing through several sprinkler lines and causing significant water damage to all three floors.

    Crews say there was 3 to 6 inches of water on each of the floors.

    At this point they don't know what caused collapse -- it could have been an underlying water leak.

    A city engineer was called in to inspect the building.

    Hotel staff found alternative rooms for those guests who were displaced.
