Grandview Inn Hotel Fire
A morning fire rips through a hotel in South Point, Ohio
and by mid-afternoon the blaze was still burning.
The manager of the Grandview Inn called 911 after seeing
smoke coming out of the kitchen storage area. It's a wake
up call a hotel guest never want. Investigators say the
flames spread through the building between the ceiling and
the roof, eventually shooting through the roof.
Battling the blaze presented a series of problems for firefighters.
There isn't a fire hydrant in the area, so tankers had to
bring in water as guests and employees watched the structure
burn. The Ohio Fire Marshall says the blaze fire caused
2 million dollars in damage. Investigators plan to return
to the scene and sift through the rubble to find a cause.
Fortunately all hotel guests safely evacuated from their
rooms, So no one got hurt. Ironically, the hotel was in
the process of a regular annual inspection by the Fire Marshals'
