Fire damages room at Billings hotel
1/12/2007

Fire caused about $35,000 in damages to a room at the Billings Hotel & Convention Center, 1223 Mullowney Lane, on Thursday night.

The fire was reported about 6:48 p.m. and was contained to a single room on the second floor, said Bill Tatum, deputy fire marshal. Heat damage was minor, but smoke damage was major. The building is insured.

The room was not occupied at the time, and no injuries were reported. The fire is considered accidental and appears to have been caused by a malfunctioning heating and air conditioning unit in the room.

Wendover Hotel Burns

Jan 14, 2007


SALT LAKE CITY One of Wendover’s oldest hotels is temporarily closed after a major fire destroyed its roof last night.

Firefighters from three different stations were called out at about 3 a.m. to the Bonneville Hotel on East Wendover Boulevard.

Crews say fire was coming out through the roof in the middle of the building.

They quickly evacuated all of the rooms and took everyone to a nearby casino.

No one was hurt but about 60 of the hotel’s rooms were damaged.

Investigators are still looking into the cause

 

Hotel guests evacuated after fire breaks out

Sunday, January 14, 2007

WESTBOROUGH - Many guests were displaced from the Extended Stay Deluxe Hotel on Computer Drive yesterday afternoon following a blaze in one room's kitchenette, fire officials said.

Nobody was injured in the 3:26 p.m. fire at 1800 Computer Drive, which originated along a wall in the kitchenette of room 132, according to Fire Lt. Brian Roberts. Firefighters knocked down the flames in about 20 minutes, but the blaze resulted in significant damage to the room and some damage to the hotel, he said.

"This was a small, confined fire, but in a high-occupancy building so that increases the seriousness of it," Roberts said.

The exact cause of the fire is under investigation, he said.

A thick, dark gray smoke filled the building and forced the evacuations, Roberts said. "They relocated a number of their guests," he said. "Certainly more than 10 or 12 guests, it might have been all of them."

Nobody from the hotel could be reached for comment last night. The company's Web site says the three-floor hotel has 86 oversized studio suites with kitchens.

Significant fire, smoke and water damage was caused by the sprinkler system and fire hoses in room 132, a suite containing a bedroom, kitchenette, bathroom and sitting area, he said. Roberts did not have an estimated value of damage last night.

"Things were burnt and melted," he said. "The contents of the kitchenette, cabinets, plates, coffee maker ... those were damaged by fire."

"There was probably some water damage in the hallway outside that room," he added.

Westborough Fire was on scene with engines, ladder trucks and ambulances. Mutual aid assistance was received by the Northborough and Southborough departments, Roberts said.

It was not known if the occupants of the room were there at the time of the fire. Roberts said the hotel was evacuated when firefighters arrived.

Fighters doused a fire at the Extended Stay Deluxe Hotel in Westborough.

 

Guests moved after hotel fire

January 17th, 2007

Guests had to be evacuated from a Shropshire hotel after a blaze broke out in the kitchens. Staff ushered people out of Whitchurch’s Macdonald Hill Valley Golf and Country Club.

They acted after acrid smoke started pouring from an industrial grill pan just after 7.30pm yesterday.

Firefighters were called to the hotel and found staff had covered the grill with a fire blanket, which was keeping the flames at bay.

Firefighters used breathing apparatus as they entered the smoke-logged kitchen and moved the portable grill outside while the blaze was tackled.

Whitchurch leading firefighter Ian Johnson praised staff for their action.

He said: “We got there and there was an industrial type grill on fire. The staff had done the right thing by putting a fire blanket over it, getting out and calling the fire service.

“The guests had been evacuated from the hotel when we got in there, but they only had to stay outside for about 20 minutes.

“There was acrid smoke pouring out when we got there and the fire was just starting to break through so we got there just in time. We had to use breathing apparatus and we moved the portable grill out into the open.”

He said there were no reports of any serious damage or injuries as a result of the incident.

Hotel managers today declined to comment on the fire.

About 40 guests at the hotel were evacuated from the 86-bedroom club in Tarporley Road in October. That fire happened when the chef overheated a sauce, setting off the fire alarm. The fire alarms were triggered in the kitchen.
