HOTEL FIRE NEW JOURNAL-68
 

Hotel, evacuated after fire, opens in morning
(Myrtle Beach) Sun News, The, June, 2007

Fire officials are still investigating the cause of an overnight fire at a Myrtle Beach-area Days Inn that displaced more than 150 people.

One room on the fifth floor of the hotel, located on the Intracoastal Waterway in Fantasy Harbour, caught fire at about 10:30 p.m., forcing guests out of their rooms as the building was evacuated, officials said.

Ninety rooms were occupied at the time of the fire, said David Kirk, the hotel's general manager. He estimated that between 150 and 180 guests were staying at the hotel, although he wasn't sure how many guests were in ..

Fire causes evacuation of Fairhaven motel

June 18, 2007 6:00 AM
FAIRHAVEN— Fire broke out in a second-floor room at the Holiday Inn Express in Fairhaven on Saturday night, triggering smoke alarms and forcing the evacuation of the fully booked hotel.

A swift response from the Fairhaven Fire Department confined the blaze to a single room and there were no injuries, officials said.

Two engines and a ladder truck were dispatched to the scene along with an ambulance. The Mattapoisett and Acushnet fire departments provided mutual aid while Fairhaven firefighters were fought the fire.

"There was heavy smoke coming from the north side of the building when we arrived," Fairhaven Fire Department public information officer Wayne Oliveira told the Standard-Times."

"The hallway was pretty charged up with smoke, so we wanted to be sure we had everybody off the fire floor."

Hotel proprietor George Walker of Marion was full of praise for the public safety officers.

"I want to applaud the police and firefighters. They went above and beyond. To respond within 2 minutes and to completely evacuate the building within 10 is just remarkable."

The hotel's alarm system is tied in to the fire station, which helped to cut the response time, he said.

"But the important thing is that nobody was hurt."

The cause of the blaze is still under investigation but it appears that the fire started in a mattress in Room 237, according to Mr.Oliveira.

"Because it's new construction, the building is a concrete shell and every room is an independent unit," he said.

The fire destroyed the room in which it occurred and there was smoke and water damage in an adjoining room.

There were conflicting reports about the room's occupancy.

According to Mr. Oliveira, the room appeared to be vacant as the bathroom was undisturbed and there were no personal belongings evident. However, hotel staff at the scene indicated that it had been rented to a female who was departing on Sunday morning.

Mr. Walker indicated that this room had a door connecting it to an adjacent room and he believed that might have led to some confusion.

The state fire marshal and Fairhaven police are investigating.

Guests waited outside for approximately two hours while the blaze was extinguished, according to Mr. Walker.

"The town worked with us," he said. "The wiring inspector released the rooms and the guests went back in at 2.10 a.m. We were booked out for Father's Day weekend and so were all the other hotels in the area. If the guests had been unable to return to their rooms they might have had a difficult time finding somewhere else to stay."

 

Hotel guests returning after fire
Lodge won't comment on restitution

Local News - Tuesday, June 19, 2007

It’s back to business as usual at Great Wolf Lodge.

Less than 24 hours after an electrical fire forced the evacuation of 200 hotel guests from the Victoria Avenue resort Monday evening, staff began checking in patrons to the rooms in the south wing Tuesday afternoon.

“The lodge is open and we’re checking people in,” said Shannon Allen, executive assistant to Great Wolf Lodge general manager Keith Simmonds, whom she said was busy working in the lobby and unavailable to comment. She said areas of the resort such as the waterpark were in use by guests throughout the day as workers ensured rooms near the site of the fire were ready for guests Tuesday evening. Cleanup (was done) throughout the day, and guest check-in began at 5 p.m.,” Allen said. The fire broke out in the main electrical system shortly after 6 p.m. Monday, and forced about 200 guests into the parking lot for three hours while firefighters and hydro workers ensured the area was safe.

About half of the guests were given rooms in the north side of the hotel, while others were offered accommodations at other hotels in the city.

Allen declined to say whether displaced guests would be offered a complimentary stay at the hotel in the future.

“We won’t be commenting on that for the paper,” she said.

Niagara Falls firefighters described the damage as “extensive,” but have not established a dollar estimate for the fire.
