Downtown fire empties hotel

Tue, May 1, 2007

Faulty generator likely culprit: fire dept.

Scores of guests were evacuated from a downtown hotel Tuesday evening after fire broke out in a lower level area.
A fire captain said the blaze at the Delta Edmonton Centre Suite Hotel, 10222 102 St. was likely sparked by a faulty generator, although investigators have yet to formally determine a cause.

As a precautionary measure the entire hotel was evacuated shortly after the fire was reported around 7:30 p.m.

No one was reported injured and the fire is believed to have been confined to the generator room.

Firefighters had the blaze under control by 8:30 p.m.

A damage estimates were not available last night, and a hotel manager was unavailable.

Blaze damages hotel in fire-prone area near CBD
Wednesday, May 02, 2007


The remaining building of the Econolodge hotel near Tulane and South Claiborne avenues was damaged by fire Tuesday, the third day in a row that fire broke out in an area near the Central Business District, the New Orleans Fire Department said.

Tuesday's fire was the fourth near South Claiborne between Canal Street and Tulane Avenue.

About 19 firefighters were sent to the old Econolodge at Tulane and South Derbigny Street at 8:43 p.m., Greg Davis, a Fire Department spokesman said.

The one-alarm fire was under control 9:16 p.m. The other building housing the Econolodge, across South Derbigny, has been demolished after being hit by a number of fires earlier this year.

Tuesday's fire was within two blocks of the previous three fires, which damaged four vacant buildings.

First, on Sunday afternoon, a three-alarm fire set by vagrants destroyed a vacant two-story house at 131 S. Dorgenois St. A firefighter suffered an injury to the hand.

Then, on Monday afternoon, a one-alarm fire damaged a two-story building at 1801 Cleveland Avenue, near 131 S. Dorgenois.

The third fire was also in the 1800 block of Cleveland. The two-alarm fire damaged two camelback residences Monday evening. The two-alarm started at 1809 Cleveland and spread to the other camelback.

EDMONTON/630 - The Sutton Place Hotel downtown was evacuated when a fire broke out on or in the roof near the front entrance around 7:30 last night.

The fire was put out quickly with minimal damage and everyone returned to their rooms


Grand Eastern Hotel fire: Woman guest rushed to hospital
05/03/2007

At least one person was reported seriously injured while several others were hurt and several guests trapped in a fire at the Great Eastern Hotel in Quezon City Thursday night.

The fire reached Task Force Charlie as of 10 p.m. Thursday. QTV-11 television reported that many of those who were injured suffered cuts after breaking glass windows to get to safety.

Many guests were forced to go up to the hotel's rooftop and await rescue there because of the thick smoke.

At least one female guest was reported to have suffocated and was rushed to the Capitol Medical Center. Rescuers still could not give an estimate on how many guests were in the hotel as rescue operations were still ongoing as of 10 p.m.

"Yung isang guest tumalon mula sa 12th or 14th floor. Sinalo ko sa 9th floor (One of the guests jumped from the 12th or 14th floor. It was lucky I caught the guest at the 9th floor)," said a hotel supervisor initially identified as Clifford Bangan.

Bangan said the hotel has 20 floors. The sixth and seventh floors appeared to be affected most in the fire, he said.

He also insisted the fire exits in the hotel are working.

It was one of the largest hotel fires in Quezon City since August 2001, when a fire that hit the Manor Hotel in Quezon City left more than 70 dead and 100 injured.

An investigation showed the six-story Manor Hotel had no working smoke alarms, and some of the fire exits were locked or obstructed and there were no emergency lights or sprinkler systems.

In 1996, 162 people, mainly teenagers, were killed in a blaze at the Ozone Disco, which had no alarm systems, emergency lights, sprinkler systems or proper fire exits
