SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) -- A Springfield church and hospital have taken in families displaced by a fire at a Springfield hotel for the homeless.
About 185 people were inside the Missouri Hotel in Springfield when the fire broke out Friday afternoon.
Now, 28 families are temporarily living at Cox North hospital while repairs are made. The Springfield News-Leader (http://sgfnow.co/yfBrfp) reported that 40 adults without children are living at Dayspring Worship Center.
A group called the Kitchen Inc. runs the hotel. CEO Rorie Orgeron says the organization is trying to provide as much normalcy as possible for Missouri Hotel residents.
Four case managers from the hotel are at the hospital, and other staff members are at the church.
