HOTEL FIRE NEW JOURNAL-34
 

11 January 2007, 09:52 GMT



Fire forces evacuation of hotel
North Wales Fire Service has stressed the importance of smoke alarms after a blaze at a hotel in Conwy county.
Two crews tackled the fire in the dining room of the Foelas Arms Hotel in Pentrefoelas just before 2300 GMT on Wednesday.

The owners were alerted by a working smoke alarm, and all guests were evacuated without injury.

Community safety manager Mark Jones said: "This incident again proves how vital it is to have a smoke alarm."

He said smoke alarms should be tested weekly, adding: "There is no excuse for anyone not to have them installed as the fire and rescue service will carry out a free home fire safety check and install smoke alarms where necessary."

The fire was brought under control within half an hour and the cause is under investigation.

The Holiday Inn BWI was evacuated briefly this morning and two employees were hospitalized after being exposed to elevated levels of carbon monoxide, an Anne Arundel County fire official said.January 11, 2007,

A female assistant front office manager and a male line cook were taken to the University of Maryland Medical Center as a precaution after complaining of nausea and headaches, general manager Adam Novotny said.


A damper on a rooftop furnace unit malfunctioned, drawing the exhaust back in to be recirculated, said Division Chief Stuart McNicol, a county Fire Department spokesman. That set off the carbon monoxide alarm shortly before 9 a.m. at the hotel at 890 Elkridge Landing Road in Linthicum.

The carbon monoxide reading inside the lobby was 30 parts per million, the level that causes detectors to sound their alarm, McNichol said. Approximately 50 guests and 30 employees were evacuated.

He said the problem was isolated to that area, and the hotel was reopened by 10 a.m., after the air was recirculated.

SUFFOLK - A worker injured in an October hotel fire has filed a lawsuit against two manufacturers he says were responsible for the problem on his propane truck that started the blaze.

Craig Huffman's lawsuit, filed late last week in circuit court, seeks $5 million from Tanks, Trucks & Trailers, a truck manufacturer registered in Richmond; and Corken Inc., a gas pump manufacturer registered in Delaware, according to the complaint.

An attorney for Corken and a company representative of Tanks, Trucks & Trailers declined to comment.

The Oct. 31 fire damaged the Best Western Suffolk and injured a hotel worker. Fire officials said the blaze started when an AmeriGas worker was filling the hotel's underground propane tank.

 

Eleven Injured In Spanish Hotel Fire

January 11th 2007

Eleven people were injured overnight in a fire at a hotel in the eastern Spanish city of Girona, the daily Periodico de Catalunya said Thursday in its internet edition.

The fire filled the fourth and fifth floors with smoke, causing panic among guests some of whom shattered windows and considered jumping down to the street. Police evacuated the 50 hotel guests and employees.

No serious injuries were reported. The nationalities of the tourists were not known. The fire was believed to have been sparked by a short-circuit.

A hotel also burned down partially in the tourist neighbourhood of Magaluf in Palma de Majorca. The fire caused no injuries, because the hotel was closed at the time, according to local press reports, which attributed the blaze to arson.
