Fire crews responded to the report of a commercial structure fire at the Venice Motel, located at 1114 N. Golden State Boulevard, after a witness saw smoke coming from one of the rooms, said Battalion Chief Dave Bickle.
Turlock Fire Chief Tim Lohman was in the area and responded to the scene to find smoke coming from the room, said Bickle. Turlock Fire Department responded with four engines and a battalion chief.
