Harrison Hotel Fire

Fire officials say four people have been injured after a fire broke out at a hotel in Harrison.

The fire started around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday night at the Quality Inn, located at 10900 New Haven Road.

The cause has not yet been determined.

Harrison Fire Chief Rob Hursong says two men were in a room where the fire started.

One is being treated at a hospital for burns and the other is being treated for smoke inhalation.

Hursong says two guests staying in an adjoining room are at a hospital being treated for smoke inhalation, and eight other guests were treated at the scene.

About 35 guests were at the 112-room Quality Inn when the fire started.

The hotel is near I-74 in Harrison, which is about 20 miles northwest of downtown Cincinnati, near the Ohio-Indiana line.

 

Five QC officials fired for hotel fire in 2001

Friday, March 24, 2006

THE Office of the Ombudsman on Thursday ordered the dismissal of Quezon City Engineer Alfredo Macapugay and four other officials for the 2001 fire in Manor Hotel in Quezon City that killed 74 people and injured about 100 others.

It was the worst hotel fire in the country’s history.

In a 33-page memorandum approved by Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez, Special Prosecutor Dennis Villa-Ignacio dismissed the respondents’ motion for reconsideration and the memorandum approved by then-Ombudsman Simeon Marcelo on November 26, 2004.

The respondents had questioned the authority of the Office of the Special Prosecutor to make such recommendations.

But in its ruling the Office of the Special Prosecutor said it is empowered to “perform such other duties and functions as the Ombudsman may assign from time to time.”

Dismissed from the service for “conduct prejudicial to the best interest of the service” besides Macapugay were Senior Supt. Manuel Baduria Sr., city fire marshal; Romualdo Santos Sr., building inspection officer; Rafael Galvez, chief of the Business Permits and License Office; and Gerardo Villasenor, electrical inspector.

Fire Captain Reynaldo Simpao, chief of the fire prevention and inspection division, and Rodel Mesa, engineer 3, were suspended for one year without pay for the same offense.

Suspended for one month without pay for simple neglect of duty were Senior Fire Officer 3 Teodoro Gaela, fireman of the Quezon City Fire Station, and Severino Mariano, a member of the inspection team.

Romeo Montallana, former acting chief of the electrical division, was ordered to return all benefits he received from the government when he retired on June 8, 2002.

The fire swept through the six-story hotel on August 18, 2001.

Investigation showed that the hotel had no working smoke alarms, some of the fire exits were locked or blocked and there were no emergency lights or sprinkler systems.

Investigators found that the electrical division of the Quezon City government never inspected the building’s electrical systems from 1995 to 2000.

Many of the hotel’s guests were attending a conference organized by an evangelical organization.

The fire was believed to have been started by a short circuit in a third-floor stockroom.

In 1998, 162 people, mainly teenagers, were killed in a blaze at the Ozone Disco also in Quezon City. A fire at the Lung Center, also in 1998, killed 20 patients.
