The Cayce Fire Department responded to 1987 Airport Blvd, the former Knight’s Inn, for a reported structure fire at approximately 2:15 am, Tuesday.

Cayce Fire Chief, Steven Bullard, stated, “There were no injuries reported and the cause of the fire is still under investigation. We are currently treating it as a suspicious fire and will provide an update upon completion of our investigation. I am thankful for our hard-working CFD team and the local departments that assisted us.”
