Hotel fire forces evacuation of guests
Monday, April 30, 2007
Intense heat from a fire that started in a storage area of a Swatara Twp. hotel forced firefighters to rotate in and out while battling the blaze yesterday.

One of the firefighters was examined at a hospital for high blood pressure, and several others were checked out by emergency medical technicians in the parking lot of the Holiday Inn at 4751 Lindle Road.

Darren Robinson, the township fire marshal, said no one was injured.

The fire started about 2:20 p.m. in a 6-by-60-foot storage room outside one of the ballrooms on the lower level of the hotel, Robinson said.

All of the hotel guests and employees were evacuated from the building, and a hotel spokesman said he could not say when the business would reopen.

"It was all concrete -- concrete walls, a concrete ceiling," Robinson said of where the fire occurred. "[The smoke and fire] was trapped. All that heat and smoke had nowhere else to go."

It was unclear yesterday what started the fire or how much damage it caused, Robinson said.

Art Deco Hotel Fire Caused By Arson
Authorities Say Samples From Fire Tested Positive For Gasoline

April 30, 2007

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -- Authorities have confirmed that a fire that destroyed an abandoned Art Deco hotel in Miami Beach earlier this year was the result of arson.

Samples from the fire debris at the Park Colony Hotel, located at 2050 Park Ave., tested positive for gasoline, according to authorities. The hotel caught fire Feb. 22.

An officer at the scene told Local 10 that two men were seen jumping the fence into the property, but investigators did not know if the men had anything to do with the fire.

FIRE AT RITZ CARLTON SENDS FOUR TO HOSPITAL
05/02/07 12:55 PDT

Investigators from the Half Moon Bay Fire Protection District are still trying to determine what caused a two-alarm fire at the Ritz Carlton Hotel Sunday night that sent four employees to a local hospital.

According to Battalion Chief David Cosgrave, investigators believe the fire started in a room on the fifth floor of the hotel, located at 1 Miramontes Point Road, at around 10 p.m.

When firefighters arrived at the hotel, Half Moon Bay police and hotel security had already begun evacuating guests from the affected floor, Cosgrave said.

After investigating the smoking room via the hotel stairwell, firefighters were able to determine that several hotel employees using fire extinguishers had already extinguished any flames. The fire did not extend to adjacent rooms.

By using a thermal image camera, firefighters were able to ensure any remaining conflagration had been extinguished, Cosgrave said.

According to investigators, the fire is believed to have started in the area of a desk inside the affected room. After clearing smoke from the room, all evacuated guests and employees were allowed to return to the fifth floor.

The four employees sent to local hospitals were all treated and released for minor smoke inhalation, Cosgrave said.
