Cleaning rags blamed for Charles City hotel fire
CHARLES CITY — Cleaning rags are being blamed for a dryer fire at a Charles City hotel early today.

An employee at the Sleep Inn and Suites, 1416 S. Grand Ave., who was drying cleaning rags in a dryer, noticed the flames inside the dryer at 12:32 a.m. today.

The employee then called 911, according to a statement released by the Charles City Fire Department.

No one was injured.

The department responded with two engines. The fire was contained to the dryer and extinguished using a carbon dioxide extinguisher.

Thick smoke permeated both floors of the two-story hotel. Occupants were evacuated to a small, smoke-free area of the building for an hour as firefighters worked to clear the smoke from the building.

Minor smoke damage was seen throughout the structure. Damage was contained to the dryer itself. The hotel was deemed safe and occupants returned to their rooms around 1:45 a.m.

Upon investigation, it was determined oily cleaning rags that still contained cleaning product residue had ignited.

The Charles City Fire Department was assisted at the scene by the Charles City Police Department and MidAmerican Energy.

The Hampton Inn & Suites located at 9850 Weddington Road in Concord was evacuated Saturday morning after a housekeeper's cart caught on fire.

Firefighters say the sprinkler system was successful in controlling the fire and confining damage to the cart, which was located in a room on the fifth floor.

Investigators determined discarded material was the cause of the fire. Damage to the hotel was estimated at around $20,000.

There were no injuries reported


Guest treated for smoke inhalation after hotel fire

Posted: 2/22/2007

A guest was treated for smoke inhalation after a Wednesday morning fire at the Nevadan Hotel caused about $7,000 damage.

The occupant of the room was rescued by firefighters working in heavy smoke and was treated on site before being sent to Renown Regional Medical Center.

The cause of the 6 a.m. fire on the fifth floor of the downtown hotel owned by Club Cal Neva remains under investigation, Reno fire investigators said.

Hotel sprinklers activated and helped firefighters confine the blaze to the room, with mostly smoke and water damage.

About 25 firefighters with three fire engines, two ladder trucks, a rescue unit and air support unit responded.


Cow Palace Inn Damaged By Fire
February 23, 2007

Colorado - Five guest rooms at the Cow Palace Inn were damaged by fire Thursday. The blaze, which started in a second-floor room on the north end of the 106-room hotel shortly before 11 a.m., destroyed two rooms and caused smoke damage to the others. No one was injured.
The fire in the hotel, which is near the Arkansas River on Main Street, spread quickly, officials said.

Lamar Deputy Fire Chief Marshall Cook said the fire was traced to an electrical outlet where a bed pushes up against the wall.

"There was a clock radio plugged into the wall there -- it looks right now to have been an electrical short that may have caused the fire," Cook said.

"We had fire that was traveling all along the covered walkway that is in front of the rooms on the second floor," Cook said.

Deanna Callahan, manager of the 35-year-old hotel, said a mattress caught fire where the blaze originated.

Callahan said that it's too soon to estimate damage costs.

"Apparently all the fire upgrading we have done over the years has helped. We have a lot of fire proofing in the building that kept the fire from going up on to the roof and spreading to other parts," Callahan said.

"It will take awhile to clean up," she added.

Cook said smoke spread across the entire structure.

"Two rooms were totally destroyed and the other rooms had varying degrees of damage and some water damage," Cook said. "The totaled room had pretty heavy heat damage -- some of the smoke detectors were melted off the ceiling -- but the rest of the rooms had mostly smoke damage."

The hotel had been evacuated before firefighters arrived and was back up and running by Thursday afternoon.
