Cause of Water Club fire uncertain as Borgata ponders any construction delay
Monday, September 24, 2007

Damage is visible Monday from a Sunday fire at the Water Club tower at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City.
The Press of Atlantic City / Ben Fogletto 3:35 p.m. Update -

Damage caused by a fire at a 43-story tower under construction in Atlantic City at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa appears to have been limited to the outside of the building, but it is still too early to say whether the project will be delayed, officials said Monday.


Borgata had hoped to open the 800-room boutique-style hotel in the first quarter of 2008. Construction experts are assessing the extent of the damage and whether the grand opening of the $400 million project, dubbed "The Water Club," may have to be pushed back.

While we have been planning for an early 2008 opening, it is too soon to know what impact this will have on the development timeline, if any," Borgata said in a statement.


Representatives of Borgata and parent company Boyd Gaming Corp. said there was no fire damage to the interior of the building. They were unsure, though, whether smoke or water may have caused any damage inside the structure.


Fire investigators are trying to determine the cause of the blaze, which broke out about 7:45 a.m. Sunday on the south side of the tower. The fire was brought under control in about 20 minutes and there were no injuries. The casino floor and hotel rooms in Borgata's main section were not damaged.

 

Cigarette causes hotel evacuation

Beetham Tower is Manchester's newest and tallest landmark
Hundreds of guests were forced to leave a Manchester hotel when a cigarette left near a toilet roll started to smoulder and activated fire alarms.
Crews were called to the 47-storey Beetham Tower on Deansgate shortly after 0100 BST.

A total of about 300 guests and staff were removed from the Hilton hotel, which is situated on the first 23 floors of the premises.

The incident was caused by a wedding guest in a fifth floor bathroom.

Smoke in ducts

Hotel general manager Bernadette Gilligan said: "There wasn't a fire as such - a guest at a wedding being held in the hotel put a cigarette near to a toilet roll in one of the smoking rooms and it started to smoulder.

"The smoke got into one of the ducts and it set off the alarms.

"Guests and staff were evacuated for about 50 minutes in total but the senior fire officer allowed people to go back into the lobby to wait once it was ascertained there was no fire and no danger.

"The hotel has not suffered any damage and is fully operational."
