Hotel fire quickly extinguished
Arizona Daily Star
Tucson, Arizona | Published: 09.10.2007
advertisementTucson firefighters responded to reports of a hotel fire about 12:30 p.m. today, but the flames had been largely extinguished by the time they got there, an official said.
The fire burned an exhaust fan of a hotel in the 4800 block of East Broadway, said Capt. Norm Carlton, a Tucson Fire Department spokesman. No one was injured.
When firefighters arrived, much of the flames had been contained by hotel employees who put the fire out using a fire extinguisher, Carlton said.


Former hotel catches fire
| 10h03 More than 20 people have to be relodged after a blaze causes extensive damage to the upper floors of a landmark building in Renens, west of Lausanne.A fire on Monday seriously damaged the former Grand Hôtel in Renens, the suburb west of Lausanne. The blaze broke out at 10.20 a.m. in a room beneath the roof of the four-storey building. Fire fighters brought the flames under control by mid-afternoon after evacuating the building’s occupants. Seven people were taken to hospital for minor injuries.

The former hotel houses a regional social center, a brasserie and accommodation for asylum seekers. La Faréas, a foundation to welcome asylum seekers in the canton of Vaud, rents seven apartments in the upper part of the building. More than 35 people live in the building, of whom 22 have to be relodged after the fire, which is still being investigated.

At first blush it seems that it was accidental “but that remains to be confirmed,” said the mayor of Renens Marianne Huguenin, who is also a member of the federal parliament. The building, located near the Renens train station, is a landmark built in 1908. The ground-floor café has developed a reputation more recently as one of the most popular places in the country for horse-race enthusiasts to gather, with a PMU outlet for placing bets.


Man dies in seafront hotel fire

About 100 firefighters were tackling the blaze at its height
A man died and several people were taken to hospital after a fire at a seafront hotel in Blackpool.
The fire broke out in the basement of the four-storey Manor Hotel on Central Promenade at about 0330 BST.

Five residents were inside at the time, including a couple from Scotland and a man who died after becoming trapped in his room on the second floor.

He was rescued by firefighters but later died in hospital after suffering a heart attack.

The fire also affected the neighbouring Waverley Hotel, which was also evacuated.

Twelve fire engines were called to the scene and at its height, about 100 firefighters were tackling the blaze.

They were forced to get out of the building after part of it collapsed.

The severity of the blaze was such that the breathing apparatus of one firefighter was smouldering and started to burn as he searched the building.

Sixty people were evacuated from neighbouring hotels and taken to safety in a nearby leisure centre.

Five residents were inside when the fire broke out

A section of the promenade between Rigby Street and Vauxhall Square was closed, and the tram service along the promenade was suspended.

Jade Cook and her partner Kenny Harper, both from Edinburgh, were inside The Manor Hotel when the fire broke out.

They said they were gasping for air as thick smoke filled the building.

Mr Harper said: "I had to hold Jade's hand to be able to see it was that dark, and that smoky."

It is not yet clear how the fire started but fire investigators remain at the scene.

John Taylor, of Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service, said: "It was a very intense fire.

"It seems to have started in the basement but there is no information as to the cause - we can't rule anything out."
