Hundreds Evacuated During Orlando Hotel Fire

POSTED: 6:43 am EST March 27, 2006
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Hundreds of people were evacuated from a hotel in a popular tourist area in Orlando early Monday.

The blaze sent 60 firefighters to the hotel, WESH 2 News reported.

A piece of plastic foliage on an interior balcony apparently caught fire around 1:30 a.m., and the blaze spread quickly. Officials said the plastic caused the fire to spread both up and down the interior balcony between the third and ninth floors.

Firefighters said the hotel staff did a good job evacuating the guests. Some staffers even grabbed fire extinguishers and helped put out the flames

Firefighters responded to flames at the Renaissance Hotel located at 6677 Sea Harbor Drive at about 1:45 a.m. Monday.

The flames were reportedly spread through the foliage that decorated the balconies at the hotel.

Local 6 News reported there was some panic when the hotel was evacuated

We were coming down the stairs and it seemed like everyone was panicking," hotel guest Dwayne Hall said.

"(Tourists) spent several hours in the cold this morning with little more than their night clothes on," Local 6 News reporter Jessica Sanchez said.

The fire was extinguished and hotel guests were allowed back into their rooms several hours after the fire.

Most of the guests were sent to a large ballroom rather than outside. They were given beverages and blankets. The hotel was full because there are currently three big conventions in town. Guests were allowed back into their rooms after about 90 minutes.

None of the rooms was damaged and no one was hurt. The state fire marshal is currently trying to figure out what caused the fire in the plastic foliage.

Officials said there were about 16 hotel rooms damaged by the fire. Most of the damage remained on the hotel balconies.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Hotel Fire Displaces Residents

POSTED: 12:39 pm PDT April 2, 2006


SAN DIEGO -- A fire that started in a residential hotel kitchen in Bankers Hill short-circuited the entire building's electricity, displacing 30 people, authorities said Sunday.

Three people were housed at an emergency shelter opened by the Red Cross at San Diego High School. The others found temporary shelter until the electricity is restored to the building in the 2100 block of First Avenue, said Cathy Sang of the Red Cross.

The fire was reported at about 9 p.m. on Saturday, a San Diego fire dispatcher said.

No one was reported injured in the fire, which gutted one unit in the building, causing $26,000 damage to property and contents, the dispatcher said.
