Huge Hotel Fire Forces Vacationers Out Into The Streets

Apr 17, 2007 4:45 PM

huge fire at a hotel in Seguin forced vacationers staying at the hotel out into the streets.
The Best Western Hotel in Seguin off of I-10 and Hwy 46 went up in flames overnight Monday. Firefighters said the fast moving fire possibly started in the attic and swept all across the hotel's roof.

The guests at the hotel were safely evacuated, but not before some very tense moments.

The cause of the fire has not been determined.

Owner to rebuild Dawson hotel damaged by fire

April 17, 2007

Less than a week after fire damaged Dawson City's Eldorado Hotel, its owner says he will rebuild and reopen the hotel.

The April 12 blaze destroyed the two-storey hotel's second floor and caused substantial damage to the rest of the building. Fire officials have pinpointed a frayed lamp cord as the cause of the fire.

"The ground floor has been untouched. The biggest problem is water damage, and so that means all of the fireguard drywall on the ceiling all has to come out. We have to get the electrical people in and the phone system has to be totally redone," owner Peter Jenkins said Tuesday.

"There's a lot of work that has to be done, but first it all has to be looked at by an engineer to determine if the existing structure is sound, which I have no doubt that will certainly be the case."

Jenkins told CBC News that the blaze has forced him to lay off a number of employees, and rebuilding efforts on the 52-room hotel will take time. He said his other hotel properties — which were not affected by the fire — will be open in time for the upcoming tourist season.

"Currently we have our motel which contains 24 rooms. We also own the Yukon Hotel on Front Street, where there's six bachelor suites in there," he said.

"So we're going to hopefully be open very, very quickly, offering the travelling public the 30 rooms. And hopefully we'll have phones up and running if Northwestel is here on time, and I believe the phones in our office will be in place this Thursday."


Fire causes $15,000 in damages to ‘Space Odyssey’ hotel suite

April 17, 2007

An electrical fire caused approximately $15,000 in damages to a fantasy suite at the Clairemont Inn on West Washington Street in West Bend Monday afternoon, said a city fire department official.

The fire started in a lighting apparatus on a bed, said West Bend Fire Department Battalion Chief Todd Van Langen. Mainten-ance workers discovered smoke coming out of the Space Odyssey suite at around 1:40 p.m. and called the Fire Department, Van Langen said.

The room was vacant said Peggy Stangenderg, a Clairemont spokesperson, and there were only five or six guests in the hotel at the time. The hotel was evacuated as a precaution until the fire was extinguished and smoke cleared from the hotel, Van Langen said. The Fire Depart-ment was on scene for about two hours, he said. The fire was contained to the room, he said.

The hotel re-opened after the clean-up, Stangenberg said.

There were no injuries.
