Dozens of people were forced to find other housing Friday after a condemned motel where they were living in Michigan City was shutdown. Kings Inn at 201 W. Kieffer Road came under an order to vacate immediately at 8:30 a.m.

Various agencies involved in finding emergency shelter for people were given a written notice of the order from the Michigan City Code Enforcement Department. Failure by the motel to pass a final fire code inspection on Thursday was cited in the order for guests to leave the premises immediately.
