    EL CENTRO -- Firefighters from six local fire departments responded to a third-alarm blaze at the Mayan Hotel, 595 W. State St., Saturday night.

    El Centro Fire Department Battalion Chief Brad Chapin said the fire was reported about 11:30 p.m. As of 1 a.m. Sunday, the fire considered contained, but not controlled. Daytime photos posted to Facebook showed firefighters still at the scene and smoke still coming from the building. Chapin told this newspaper early Sunday firefighters would likely be at the scene all day.
