MARYSVILLE – E Street in Marysville remains closed in both directions after a fire broke out at the Hotel Marysville late Saturday night.

Firefighters found a working fire at the hotel on E Street late Saturday night, prompting a road closure between 4th and 5th Streets around 11 p.m. 

It wasn't until about 9 a.m. Sunday when crews said they had the fire contained. Firefighters said they were going to remain at the scene to monitor the building for about 24 hours. 

As of 7 a.m. Monday, Caltrans said E Street, which is also Highway 70, was still closed between 3rd and 6th streets. Traffic is being detoured through city streets and drivers should expect "significant" delays.

Caltrans said extended closures will be in place if the building needs to be demolished.

The fire department added that the road closure will remain until the city determines the building is no longer a danger to E Street.

The cause of the fire is unknown. 

The Linda, Loma Rica, Yuba City, Wheatland and Olivehurt fire departments all responded to help extinguish the flames.
