Fire at OOB hotel
OLD ORCHARD BEACH (May 26, 2007): Firefighters quickly contained a small blaze that started at the Ocean Walk Hotel on East Grand Avenue in Old Orchard Beach around 8 a.m. Saturday. The fire was discovered when guests at the hotel, who were in town from Connecticut for a wedding, noticed smoke in back of their room.

According to Old Orchard Beach Fire Chief John Glass, the fire was caused by heat from a vent, which burned the wood in the wall. Glass said once the fire department arrived, set up and found the source, it took about 20 minutes to put out the fire.

OLD ORCHARD BEACH (May 26, 2007): Firefighters quickly contained a small blaze that started at the Ocean Walk Hotel on East Grand Avenue in Old Orchard Beach around 8 a.m. Saturday.

The fire was discovered when guests at the hotel, who were in town from Connecticut for a wedding, noticed smoke in back of their room.

According to Old Orchard Beach Fire Chief John Glass, the fire was caused by heat from a vent, which burned the wood in the wall. Glass said once the fire department arrived, set up and found the source, it took about 20 minutes to put out the fire.

“They were here very, very quickly,” said hotel owner Don Saucier, who commended the firefighters on the efficiency their work.

Glass said the location of the fire within the wall made the source hard to find and the fire particularly dangerous. In order to put out the fire, the wall had to be broken into. Glass did not yet have an estimate of the damage.

According to Deputy Fire Chief Norman Gendron, the siding on the outside of the building burns very quickly and if the smoke hadn't been detected, the small, contained fire could have been a big one.

“It had potential,” Gendron said.

West County Hotel Fire Forces Brief Evacuations
5/27/2007

Guests at a west St. Louis County hotel were evacuated Sunday night after a fire broke out in a third floor utility room.

The two-alarm fire, which started around 7:45 at the Doubletree Hotel St. Louis at Westport, forced guests on the second, third and fourth floors of the hotel to evacuate.Advertisement


The hotel's sprinkler system extinguished the fire before crews from the Creve Coeur Fire Department arrived.

But for some hotel guests, it wasn't the fire that had them concerned; it was the fire alarm system. Guests on other floors were notified by a telephone call.

The system at the hotel is designed to activate the alarms on the floor where the fire occurred and the floors directly above and below it.

Still, this was no comfort to concerned guests

"We talked with some of the other guests on another floor who had the same experience. They didn't hear anything ... so there were some upset guests," said hotel guest Frank Ackerman.

"We didn't know what was going on. They need to get a better system as far as an alarm going off," said Robert Mitchell, another hotel guest.

Hotel guests were eventually allowed back into their room.

It was not immediately known how much damage the fire caused.

 

Fire guts Zanzibar tourist hotel
02, 2007

FIREFIGHTERS on Thursday tackled a blaze which broke out at Labadrugada tourist hotel at Kigaeni in Makunduchi, South of Unguja Island.

According to the police and eyewitnesses, efforts were made to evacuate some items from rooms for safety after fire broke out in the kitchen and moved to reception.
An anonymous fire service man told the ‘Daily News on Saturday’: "We fortunately managed to put off the fire and saved other buildings, but you can get details from the Regional Police Commander.”

The Unguja South Regional Police Commander (RPC), Mr Amin Mahamba, confirmed the incident, saying: “It is true fire burned down part of the hotel, but we are yet to have the details.”

However, according to an eye witness, the fire broke out at around 6.45am on Thursday, causing panic to staff and visitors.

Mr Kassim Ramadhan, a staff with the hotel situated about 50 kilometres south of the Zanzibar Stone Town, said that some items in the room where the fire started, were reduced to ashes, as he suspected electrical fault to be the cause of the fire.

The hotel, owned by an investor from Spain, is a popular leisure site with the roofs of most rooms being thatched with coconut leaves
