Man injured in Osner Hotel fire,

7/13/2006

SMOKING: Fire fighters last night succeeded in containing damage to the western side of the Hotel Osner’s two top floors after a fire started on the seventh floor.


THERE was just a single casualty last night when several rooms on the top two floors of East London’s landmark Osner Hotel on the beachfront were seriously damaged by fire and smoke.

The name of the man who was taken to hospital by ambulance could not be established last night.


Hotel management acted quickly to evacuate the 114-room eight-floor hotel immediately after the fire was reported at about 5.30pm.

Several fire engines raced to the scene and police and traffic police responded swiftly to control crowds.

Police spokesperson Captain John Fobian said a full assessment would be done this morning.

“The cause of the fire will be thoroughly investigated ... and I expect the forensic experts to start going through the damaged rooms with a fine tooth comb as soon as possible,” Fobian said.
