A hotel in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley is closed following a fire that broke out Christmas morning. Gene Opdyke, of Summerville, Fla., was among about 30 guests of the Hawthorn Suites in Fogelsville displaced by the fire. He says people didn't panic and the evacuation was orderly.

Fogelsville Fire Chief Doug Guth says firefighters were called at about 7:40 a.m. Thursday and the fire was reported contained at 10:30 a.m.

The fire damaged the hotel's roof and some guest rooms. The cause was not immediately known.

Fogelsville is about 50 miles north-northwest of Philadelphia.
