Fire inflicts some smoke damage at DoubleTree
By TRISTAN SCOTT of the Missoulian

Guests were evacuated from the DoubleTree Hotel early Wednesday as firefighters quelled a small fire that broke out in the kitchen.

Assistant Fire Marshal Nate Nunnally, who investigated the fire, estimated that 80 percent of the 171 guest rooms were occupied, and said everyone was evacuated from the building at 100 Madison St.

“When I showed up there were a lot of people standing outside in their sleeping gear,” Nunnally said. “The entire building was cleaned out for a good couple of hours.”

Guests were allowed to return to their rooms at about 2:30 a.m.

The fire started in the kitchen at the hotel's Finn and Porter Restaurant, where a grease buildup combusted inside an infrared stove. Although flames spread to the ventilation system and the roof of the building, the fire was contained to the kitchen and no one was injured.

Nunnally estimated damage to the restaurant at about $65,000, but said costs could be higher or lower.

In total, about 25 emergency personnel responded to the two-alarm fire.

Dan Cortino, general manager of the DoubleTree, said Finn and Porter will be closed for several days while the duct work is replaced.

“It shouldn't be more than a few days but I don't have a definitive date,” he said.

Even though the fire was contained, guests at the hotel were evacuated as a precautionary matter, Cortino said.

Nunnally acknowledged that even firefighters thought the fire would be more serious at first glance.

“It looked really bad at first because of all the smoke and the grease buildup in duct system,” Nunnally said. “It was just a chimney fire, but it looked like there were flames shooting through the roof. Our firefighters were thinking ‘Oh boy, this is the big one.' ”

He said any kitchen that produces “grease-laden vapors” faces similar hazards, and emphasized the importance of keeping ventilation ducts clean.”

Hotel Under Construction In Tampa On Fire

A Best Western hotel under construction on Waters Avenue in Tampa is on fire.

The 3-alarm fire started around 10:45 a.m. Friday on the fourth floor. There are now around 60 firefighters on the scene.

All of the construction workers got out before the fire spread. No one was injured in the fire.

The sprinkler system inside the building was not yet working, so it wasn't able to help put out the fire

4 Alarm Hotel Fire Under Control
TAMPA -- Hillsborough firefighters are investigating a multi-alarm blaze that caused severe damage to a hotel.
The Best Western Hotel, at 3826 West Waters Avenue, was under construction when the fire broke out around 11AM.

The hotel wasn't open yet, so there were no guests were staying in the hotel, although some workers were inside. They all made it out safe.

The fire appears to have started on the 4th floor, but wind quickly spread it throughout the building.

This forced Hillsborough County Fire Rescue to call Mayday. Fearful the roof could collapse, they ordered all firefighters out of the building and decided to fight the fire from outside the hotel.

Two firefighters were injured while leaving the building. However their injuries were not serious and they were treated at the scene.

The cause of the fire, as well as the total extent of the damage is not yet known.

It took about two hours to get the fire under control, but firefighters continue to monitor it for hot spots.
