AdvertisementAt least two people were killed and 10 injured on Monday when the roof over the entrance of a Rio de Janeiro hotel near Copacabana beach collapsed, rescue workers said.

The three-star Hotel Canada stands on busy Nossa Senhora de Copacabana Avenue, parallel to the beachside Avenida Atlantica, popular with tourists. The city is still full of tourists after last week's Carnival celebrations.

"We don't know if the people were just passing by or were guests at the hotel. There is a chance of finding more victims under the rubble, we're trying to lift the collapsed roof," said Maj. Moreira, a spokesman for the fire service.

Globo television said the hotel is one of the oldest in the area and had recently been refurbished.

FIRE ripped through a luxury hotel, causing more than £100,000 of damage

while its boss was picking up a top industry award for the venue.

Steven McLeod had to cut short his acceptance speech at the Scottish Hotel of the Year Awards and rush back to Airth Castle, near Falkirk, Stirlingshire. Steven had earlier picked up the Rising Star gong at the awards in Glasgow's Crowne Plaza hotel.

Airth Castle then won the Turnaround award for Most Improved Scottish Hotel.

Steven, 32, who also owns the Glenbervie House Hotel in Larbert, Stirlingshire, told yesterday how word of the fire reached him as he made his speech at 10.30pm on Sunday.

He said: "I looked to my table and everyone's faces were white. They were motioning me to finish. "I stumbled through a few more words and got off the stage. "We just rushed outside and hailed a black cab back to the hotel. "When we got there, 142 guests who had been evacuated were standing outside and the area was swarming with firefighters.

"It looks like it was an electrical fault in the ventilation system.

"It is too early to say what the damage will be but it looks certain to cost in excess of £100,000."

He said the fire started in the £1million spa in the hotel, which is built around a 14th-century castle.

Steven, from Stirling's Raploch, only took over Airth Castle in 2005.

Within a year, he raised it from three stars to become
 

Fire evacuates guests at a Rockland hotel
ROCKLAND, Mass. - A fire tonight causes a headache for guests staying at a Rockland hotel.

A portion of the Radisson on Hingham Street had to be evacuated shortly before 7 p.m. when a planter on the fourth floor caught fire.

Investigators believe someone may have put a cigarette out in it.

Within minutes smoke had filled the hall.

No one was injured and no major damage is reported.

The call went to two-alarms because the Rockland Fire Department simply didn't have the resources to handle it on their own.

A town meeting is scheduled for Monday to discuss the firefighter shortage.
