HOTEL FIRE NEW JOURNAL-58
 

Hotel destroyed

11 May 2007

AN ESSEX hotel lies in ruins today after fire tore through the Grade II listed property.

Crews were called to Orsett Hall Hotel, in Orsett, this morning after fire broke out in the kitchens. Hampered by lack of water fire-fighters struggled to bring the blaze under control.

Shortly after midday the building collapsed.

Dave Bill, divisional officer with Essex County Fire and Rescue Service said: “Orsett Hall has been destroyed, although a new annexe at the side of the main building remains unscathed.Set in 12 acres of grounds Orsett Hall was due to host a wedding today and three further weddings tomorrow.

Just after 1pm initial investigations reported the fire started in the grill in the kitchen which was being used to prepare breakfast for hotel guests.

Mr Bill added: “It quickly spread through a void which ran up three floors of the building from the kitchen to the roof.

At 1.20pm, divisional officer Olly Holford, commander for Thurrock and Brentwood, said: “The fire is surrounded with one oscillating monitor and four main jets in use. Gas and electricity supplies have been isolated. Steady progress is being made.

“There is still thick smoke over the area and families living in Orsett and the surrounding area are being advised to keep their windows closed.”

The hotel management has set up an information number for members of the public to call if they have upcoming events booked at the hotel

No one injured in La Jolla hotel fire

May 13, 2007

SAN DIEGO – No one was injured Sunday in a fire that started in the basement of a hotel in the city's Golden Triangle area, east of the UC San Diego campus, fire officials said.
The fire at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, 3777 LaJolla Village Drive, was reported at 1:40 p.m. and knocked down 50 minutes later, said Maurice Luque of San Diego Fire-Rescue. Eighteen employees and 136 guests were evacuated, but there were no injuries, he said.
Crews will remain on the scene to investigate what caused the blaze and clean up, he said.

The fire started in the basement utility room and quickly spread up the linen shoot, Luque said.

“It got so hot between the first and second floor, that the surrounding material caught fire," he said.

Firefighters initially reported seeing heavy smoke on the 16th floor.

At one point, authorities blocked traffic coming south from LeBon street.

Six fire trucks, 13 engines and 76 firefighters from San Diego as well as Solana Beach, Del Mar and U.S. Marine Corps Air Station Miramar battle the blaze, he said.
