ORLANDO, Fla. -

A mobile meth lab forced authorities to evacuate a portion of a hotel in the tourist district of Orlando.

Firefighters early Wednesday initially went to the Ramada Inn at 8342 Jamaican Court near International Drive because of a suspicious smell, but officials decided to call the hazmat team to further investigate.

Crews focused on one room and discovered chemicals used to make meth, deputies said.

A Central Florida woman to whom the room was registered was arrested.  Two other women who were in the motel room were trespassed by the business, deputies said.

Some deputies were treated for exposure to the chemicals but were expected to be OK.
