One killed today in three-alarm hotel fire in Oakland

Fri, Aug. 25, 2006

One person died and two people were injured in a three-alarm residential hotel fire in Oakland's Lake Merritt neighborhood this morning, fire Capt. Melinda Drayton said.

Oakland firefighters continue to mop up following the fast-moving blaze, which was reported at 3:58 a.m. at the six-story Lakehurst Residential Hotel at 1569 Jackson St. It quickly reached three-alarms and took 70 firefighters to control the blaze by 4:30 a.m., Drayton said.

Drayton said that one person died in the fifth-floor apartment where the blaze began, and two others were taken to the hospital.

The blaze spread out a window from the fifth floor apartment, which was destroyed, and damaged an apartment on the sixth floor.

All of the building's other residents have been evacuated and Drayton said firefighters are working on a count of displaced residents for the American Red Cross.

Drayton said crews remain at the residential hotel to clean up and to investigate the cause of the blaze and the person's death.

An investigation is underway into a deadly fire at a residential hotel in Oakland that killed one person and injured two others this morning.

The fire was in the hotel on Jackson Street just a block from Lake Merritt.

Adam Friedman lived on the top floor of the hotel. He says he woke up to smoke alarms and chaos at four this morning. "I smelled it before I realized what it was and I should have been more mentally alert and gotten out of there sooner," he said.

Friedman was one of 80 people evacuated from the hotel. One person on the 5th floor did not make it out. He was badly burned in his studio unit.

Many of the people who live in the hotel are elderly and many are physically or mentally impaired, which slowed the evacuation.

"If there's only one stairwell, you've got firefighters going up, people coming down, that's always going to be a significant problem. We usually try to make sure that residents have one way of getting out and firefighters take a different way," said Fire Captain Melinda Drayton.

There is no apparent cause yet for the fire.

 

Sprinklers Halt SF Hotel Fire

August 28, 2006

SAN FRANCISCO -- A one-alarm fire at boutique hotel in San Francisco's Union Square Monday morning could have been a lot worse, were it not for working sprinkler system.

A fire dispatcher said the blaze was reported at 6:25 a.m. in a room at the Prescott Hotel at 545 Post St.

Firefighters arrived to finish up the work of the hotel's automatic sprinkler system and quickly extinguished the blaze, which apparently began in a mattress, by 6:34 a.m.

No injuries have been reported, according to the fire department, and the hotel room sustained mostly water damage
