Nashville Fire Department investigators are asking the public for information in connection with a fire that took place at a vacant hotel Monday morning.

The fire was reported about 6:15 a.m at the former American Inn at 1360 Brick Church Pike just south of Trinity Lane.

According to officials, a fire crew was responding to a medical call at a nearby hotel when a woman came in and said the hotel was on fire.

The crew reported it to dispatch and firefighters were at the scene in five minutes and began fighting the fire.

Fire spokeswoman Kendra Loney said a woman told arriving firefighters she was asleep in the abandoned hotel’s lobby when she woke up and saw another woman pouring gas near her. The unidentified woman, she said, then set the fire.
