HOTEL FIRE NEW JOURNAL-13
 

Dozens flee hotel inferno
DOZENS of holidaymakers were today forced to flee their hotel when fire tore through the building.

29 April 2006

Around 50 people were evacuated from the Moores Hotel in Banks Street at around 4am when a blaze broke out in a second floor room.
Teams of firefighters fought the inferno as holidaymakers - some dressed only in bedsheets - were forced to shelter in a nearby guest house.
Flames could be seen shooting from the roof of the hotel as around 35 firefighters fought to bring the blaze under control.
Holidaymaker, Tracy Aldworth from Devizes, Wiltshire, said: "It was horrific.
"You could see flames coming from the roof.
"All we thought about was getting out."
Watch Manager, Ian Alder, of Forest Gate said crews from Forest Gate, Bispham, South Shore, St Annes and Chorley were using high-powered jets to prevent the fire and stop the flames spreading to other parts of the building.
He said: "A hotel fire in Blackpool is the nightmare scenario for us.
"This was a very severe fire.
"It took a lot of hard work to prevent it spreading to the whole building."
Part of Dickson road was sealed off while fire crews worked on the building.
Banks Street remained sealed off this morning as firefighters dampened down at the scene.
Fire investigators were due to visit the hotel later today.

Morning fire disrupts visitors at Quality Inn
Sat, Apr. 29, 2006

GEORGETOWN - Shirley Mack's and husband Henry Mack's plans to spend several relaxing days on vacation in Georgetown were disrupted Friday when a fire broke out at their hotel.

The Mount Pleasant couple stayed a night at Quality Inn on Church Street, but early Friday they watched Georgetown and Midway firefighters extinguish the blaze as they made plans to move to another hotel.

No one was injured, said Georgetown Fire Chief Joey Tanner.

"It was like the Fourth of July," Henry Mack said, describing a sparking power line that fell near their second-floor room. "I head a 'kaboom' and the television went out. I knew it was an electrical fire, so we got out."

The fire was contained to the attic at the rear of the building. Tanner did not know the exact cause of the blaze.

Charred power lines were visible.

The Quality Inn is expected to remain closed for at least a week, a hotel employee said.

Meanwhile, city building officials checked the hotel to ensure there were no code violations. The hotel had just reopened under new ownership, said Georgetown building official Jason Goude.

The renovated hotel is not required to have a sprinkler system, but it has smoke detectors, Goude said.

Guests at the Quality Inn were being relocated Friday.
