Nobody injured in hotel fire

TERRE HAUTE — Heavy smoke from a fire at a Terre Haute hotel could be seen several blocks away Tuesday.

The call for the fire at the Ramada Limited at 101 Margaret Ave. came in at 1:57 p.m. Members of the Terre Haute Fire Department arrived at the scene at 1:59 p.m., said Jeff Fisher, public information officer for the fire department.

A dryer is thought to be the cause of the blaze, Fisher said.

The fire was under control by 2:04 p.m., and all damage was contained to the laundry room and the stairwell, Fisher said.

There were no injuries.

 

Mission Hotel catches fire
Friday, September 1, 2006
A hotel fire in Santa Maria on Friday afternoon could be the result of arson.

Santa Maria police are investigating whether or not a woman started the fire on West Main Street.

About 40 people were evacuated at the Mission Hotel. Many of them are long-term residents, and one of them said the alleged suspect made threats of burning the hotel down.

"When the manager asked her to leave, she said that she was gonna get even with the place, and the next thing you know she left, and her room was on fire. And then she leaves, and now she's back cussing everybody out," said Melody Cruz, Mission Hotel resident.

One person who lives in the hotel was treated after complaining of chest pain.

5 juveniles arrested in Owensboro hotel fire

Sun, Sep. 03, 2006

OWENSBORO, Ky. - Five juveniles were charged on Sunday for their alleged involvement in a hotel fire that injured four people the day before, authorities said.

A 16-year-old was charged with first-degree arson and first-degree burglary in the fire, which happened early Saturday morning at the 600-room Executive Inn Rivermont in Owensboro.

Four other teenagers were charged with criminal trespassing in connection with the incident, police said.

The fire sent at least four people to the hospital - two guests, a fire inspector and a firefighter. Assistant Fire Chief John Vessels said he didn't know how many others went to the hospital by private vehicle to get checked out.

Fire Inspector Cliff Brandon was the only person still in the hospital on Sunday, Vessels said. Brandon was taken to the emergency room at Owensboro Medical Health System for chest pains and remained there for observation, Vessels said. A firefighter and two guests were treated in the emergency room and released, he said.

"We're just glad no one was really hurt badly," Executive Inn general manager Barry Bartley said.

The fire started in an unoccupied room on the second floor of the pool building, said Steve Leonard, a fire department battalion chief.

Vessels said no accelerants were found at the scene.

The fire, smoke and water damaged about 242 rooms, officials said. About 80 of the rooms were occupied when the fire was reported at 4:06 a.m. CDT.

When fire units arrived, heavy, black smoke was coming from the pool building on the west wing and a lot of people were calling for help, some disoriented, Leonard said.

"The firefighters had to do two different things simultaneously - fight the fire and rescue," Leonard said. "They broke out windows and rescued people with the ladders. It was pretty extraordinary."

Hotel officials had started evacuations before the fire trucks arrived, Bartley said. Guests were immediately relocated to rooms in the tower.

Assistant Manager Jan Kinsey said hotel sales staff is going through the lodging list to make sure guests can be accommodated. Other local hotels are helping the hotel and convention center, she said.
