Cars Catch Fire In Hotel Parking Lot

POSTED: 8:26 pm PDT August 16, 2007

MISSION VALLEY, Calif. -- Three cars burned after catching fire inside a hotel parking lot Thursday in Mission Valley, officials said.

The fire broke out at 6:43 p.m. at the Doubletree Hotel on Hotel Circle South.

According to Perry Peake, Deputy Chief of the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department, crews responded to a fire on the third floor of the hotel's high-rise parking structure.

Crews were able to knock down the flames in 15 minutes. "Cars burn very well, so the crews getting in there quickly really made a difference," Peake said.

It is unknown why the first car caught fire, but those flames spread to two nearby vehicles, Peake said. Arson investigators were looking into the incident.

No one was injured. There were no estimates on the damage.


One dead, four missing in UK hotel fire

August 19, 2007 07:15am

ONE man died and four people remained unaccounted for after a deadly fire swept through a hotel in the seaside resort of Newquay, southwest England early today.

Five people remain in hospital, two of whom are in a critical condition, following the blaze at the four-storey Penhallow Hotel in Cornwall, just after midnight yesterday (0900 AEST Saturday).

"There are four unaccounted for guests at the moment,'' police superintendent Barry Frost told BBC television, downgrading an earlier estimate of between six and 12 missing people.

Mr Frost said officially there were 90 guests and staff in the building but it was still unclear whether more people, such as friends of guests, were there at the time.

He also appealed for information about a burglary that happened at the premises shortly after 7pm today, although he would not say whether there was a connection with the fire, nor whether the blaze was arson.

The man who died jumped from a hotel window on the second or third floor as the fire took hold, police said earlier.

The fire destroyed the interior of the 54-room seafront hotel, leaving only a smouldering exterior shell.

At its height, 120 firefighters were involved in battling the inferno and 23 fire appliances were at the scene, Cornwall County Fire Brigade said.

Staff from neighbouring hotels also made desperate attempts to help the guests, many of whom were elderly and distressed.

The dead man had yet to be identified, Mr Frost said. Two elderly hotel guests were in a critical condition in hospital.

Police must wait until demolition experts have made the site secure before starting their hunt for the missing people either late today or tomorrow.

Firefighters were still searching the building, Ted Simpson, the brigade's deputy chief fire officer, said. The missing people "may or may not be inside the building''.

Seventy-two survivors were being taken home to northwest England this evening, said a spokesman for the Robinson Holidays group, the parent company of the firm that owns the hotel.

August 19, 2007 - 10:31AM


Fire extensively damaged an historic hotel in Melbourne overnight.

About 20 firefighters were called to the Gasometer Hotel on the corner of Smith Street and Alexander Parade, in inner suburban Collingwood, about 1.30am (AEST).

The blaze was in the roof and firefighters forced to remove a large section of the roof structure to get to the flames.

The roof was severely damaged, the ceiling collapsed into the top floor and the ground floor suffered extensive water damage,.

The cause of the fire, which was brought under control in under an hour, is not yet known.

Damage was estimated at more than $300,000.
