SOUTH BRUNSWICK — A two-alarm fire heavily damaged the main building at a hotel on Route 1 in Central Jersey on Sunday night.

Two firefighters were hospitalized for heat exhaustion while battling the blaze, in a room on the second floor of a two-story building at the Best Western Princeton Manor Inn & Suites on the southbound side of Route 1, according to South Brunswick Police.

The fire was contained to the one room but 50 guests were relocated because power could not be restored to just one portion of the building and was considered uninhabitable, according to police.

The cause of the fire at the hotel, across from a shopping center that includes Target and Best Buy, remains under investigation by the South Brunswick Fire Marshal. The fire does not appear to be suspicious, according to police.

60 fire fighters and EMS from Plainsboro, Little Rocky Hill, North Brunswick Fire Company #3, Plainsboro First Aid, and the Middlesex County Mutual-Aid Fire Coordinators.
