Hotel Fire Prompts Late-Night Evacuation.

POSTED: 6:05 am EST February 4, 2005
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Tourists staying at a Daytona Beach resort had to be evacuated Thursday night because of a fire.

Laundry Room Fire Prompts Hotel Evacuation
Firefighters were able to get everyone out safely, and they did it with help from Daytona Beach police officers, WESH NewsChannel 2 reported.

The fire ignited in a laundry room just after 10 p.m. Firefighters were able to put it out before the flames spread. At about 20 minutes before midnight, guests at the resort were allowed to return to their rooms.

Investigators said they don't know how the fire started, but they do know it caused about $25,000 in damage.

Speedweeks kicks off in Daytona Beach this weekend, and it ends with the Daytona 500 on Feb. 20. Speedweeks is expected to bring in about 500,000 race fans. There's no word yet whether the fire will force any of the hotel's guests to find another place to stay.

 

Hotel closed following afternoon fire

Posted on Thu, Apr. 06, 2006

The blaze at Country Inns & Suites started in the attic.

The fire started shortly after 1 p.m. Thursday, a thin plume of smoke rising from the center of the hotel. In no time, the Country Inns & Suites at 5926 Cross Creek Blvd., just off Washington Center Road, was in flames.

“You saw a little bit of smoke, but you didn’t really think much of it,” said Alex May of Indianapolis, a guest at the hotel and one of the first to notice something was wrong. “It could’ve been anything.”

All staff and guests were safely evacuated. Nobody was hurt in the blaze, though paramedics were on the scene just in case.

An investigation ruled the cause of the fire to be an electrical problem. Deputy Fire Chief Pete Kelly of the Fort Wayne Fire Department said the attic, where the fire originated, sustained heavy damage. The three-story hotel, he said, could be closed for a couple of days to a couple of weeks, though that would be left up to code enforcement.

 

Motel management was working with area hotels to house displaced guests. A room on the third floor suffered structural damage after firefighters entered the attic through it. It took firefighters who first responded “a little bit of time” to make their way to the fire, he said.

“Sometimes you’ll be on the third floor below that area, and you know something’s going on above you and you see smoke on the roof, but sometimes it’s hard to access that area,” Kelly said. “They (firefighters) had to make access through some of the ceilings and a couple of rooms on the third floor.”

May said he and some other guests notified an employee at the front desk when they first saw smoke, then went back outside. As the smoke thickened, May went in and retrieved his belongings from his room. That’s when the fire alarm went off.

When May came back outside, not only was there smoke, there were flames.

“It started really coming out,” May said. “It was real thick, and the smoke coming out the back was especially thick.”

May said firefighters arrived quickly, and police followed. About a dozen guests and employees watched from the lawn just off the parking lot. Onlookers not staying at the hotel watched from across the street.

Eventually, eight fire engines from across the city responded. Firefighters treated the blaze as a high-rise fire, using special equipment that allowed them to pump water higher than the first floor. By 1:40 p.m., only a few flames flickered on the roof of the hotel’s charred center gable. The hotel’s sign also was damaged. Some firefighters were stationed on the roof with chain saws; others fought the blaze in a third-floor room next to the gable, checking for hot spots.

“They really isolated it to the peak area there,” Kelly said.
