Fire Damages the Shartlesville Hotel

An old Berks County landmark isn't the same this morning after fire broke out last night. It broke out around midnight at the Shartlesville Hotel on Main Street in Upper Bern Township. Officials say they arrived on the scene to find flames coming out of windows in the back of the building. Firefighters were able to contain the fire quickly, but the building did sustain significant damage on the inside. An investigation is under way to determine what caused the fire.


Firefighters Rescue Several Hotel Guests From Fire
: 27/03/2007
UTAH- Several fire crews responded to a fire at a busy Salt Lake hotel tonight.

Heavy smoke and flames filled parts of the second story of the Days Inn at 3300 South 300 West just after 7 p.m. The flames trapped several people upstairs.

"We had to rescue some people off the second story," explained Chief Steve Foote of the South Salt Lake Fire Department. "Again, we had a situation where people were ready to jump."

Everyone got out safely. The fire destroyed four rooms, and smoke damaged several others. Investigators don't know yet what started the fire.


Early-Morning Fire Guts Historic Hotel, Two Other Buildings Posted 2007-03-27

Second Blaze In A Year Hits Downtown Shenandoah

Firefighters battle the blaze that swept through three buildings on First Street in Shenandoah early Tuesday morning.

SHENANDOAH — A fire swept through First Street in Shenandoah early Tuesday morning, destroying three buildings including the historic Eagle Hotel, officials say. Five families were displaced, but no injuries were reported, fire officials say.

als and firefighters say they’re relieved no one was hurt in the blaze — the second major fire to hit First Street in the past year.

“It’s hard to say which one was bigger than the other,” Assistant Chief Ian Rudolph of the Shenandoah Volunteer Fire Company said, comparing Tuesday’s fire to the one in May. “Both were very big and bad days for Shenandoah.”

Firefighters responded to the Tuesday call at about 2:20 a.m. and saw fire burning in three buildings on the 500 block of First Street.

About 80 volunteers with 15 trucks responded, Rudolph said. They fought it for about two hours, concentrating on keeping the fire from spreading to nearby buildings, he said.

Still, the heat melted siding off of a nearby home, as well as signs and windows on a building across the street.

Lt. C.S. Cook of the Page County Sheriff’s Office said authorities don’t know the fire’s cause and that intense heat and the amount of rubble to sift through could prolong the investigation for several days.

Bomb and arson investigators with Virginia State Police will assist the sheriff’s office with the investigation, Cook said. Their presence only ensures that investigators have the expertise they need — not that the fire was necessarily deliberately set, he said.

“At this point, [the cause] is totally undetermined,” Cook said.

After reviewing the burned-out buildings, Cook did say he suspects the fire began in the Eagle Hotel.


Hotel clubhouse in Bastrop Co., Austin home catch fire
Updated: 3/28/2007 12:39 PM

Investigators said Tuesday night's fire at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines resort in Bastrop County was accidental.

The fire began in the hotel's clubhouse. Hotel staff tried to put out the fire with extinguishers.

Firefighters found the fire had spread to the attic and quickly got it under control.

"It was a combination of the hotel personnel helping us and a quick response that made this fire not as bad as it could have been," Bluebonnet Fire Department Chief Buddy Burrow said.

No one was hurt and there was little damage.

29/03/2007 - 16:05:35

A gas tank exploded at a Turkish five-star Mediterranean hotel today, killing one person and injuring 11 others, including two foreign tourists, the governor's office said.

The explosion of the liquefied petroleum gas tank damaged the kitchen and the restaurant of the Kaya Hotel in the resort town of Belek, near Antalya, the government-run Anatolia news agency reported.

A Turkish kitchen staff member was killed in the blast, which also injured nine other staff members and two tourists - one from Russia and one from Norway, the Antalya governor's office said.

Most of the injured suffered cuts from broken glass, the statement said.
