Ocean Boulevard Hotel fire leads to evacuation

Guests were evacuated from an Ocean Boulevard hotel early Thursday because of a fire, but authorities said no one was injured and everyone was allowed back to their rooms within minutes.

The fire occurred about 4:30 a.m. at the Compass Cove Resort 2311 S. Ocean Blvd., authorities said.

Myrtle Beach police said it was an electrical problem but could not specify its cause or location.

Guests in one of the hotel's towers were evacuated as a precaution. Those people waited across the street for about 15 minutes while firefighters got the fire under control and declared the building safe, authorities said.

Further details will be reported as they are available.

Fire razes hotel

LIBAU -- Fire destroyed a rural hotel and left its sole resident homeless early yesterday morning.

The Hotel Libau Inn caught fire sometime around 2:30 a.m.

"It's sad," said former resident Reinhart Schwark yesterday during a break from his job at Horbas Transport. "It was a meeting place for a lot of the local people ... And I've got no place to go."

Schwark had called the hotel home for the past four years.

The single-building blaze caused $250,000 damage, also destroying the tiny town's sole restaurant, beer vendor and hotel.

Libau is about 45 km north of Winnipeg.

Schwark, the hotel's only occupant at the time of the blaze, awoke to the sound of an alarm. He said he left his room and followed a trail of smoke downstairs, then spotted flames through a smoky haze inside the owner's office.

REDUCED TO ASHES

"I broke one door down to go in the kitchen and I couldn't break the second door down," said Schwark, who had hoped to put out the blaze. "I lost a lot of things."

Schwark's tool set, clothing and other items worth about $2,000 were reduced to ashes, he said yesterday.

For now, he'll stay in the Horbas office.

By afternoon, all that remained of the 1940s inn was a large pile of charred doors, steps and wood.

Jagdish Mistry, who has owned the hotel for 11 years, said he was shocked to see his investment turn to rubble.

"It was very depressing," said Mistry from his Winnipeg home yesterday evening. "I have no idea what's next."

Mistry has insurance but isn't sure if he'll rebuild the 12-room, two-storey structure.

He tried to sell the property last June, but gave up due to lack of interest.

Grand Marais, East Selkirk, Narol and Beausejour fire departments battled the blaze.

"It was such a devastating fire, we had to take it down with a backhoe," said East Selkirk Fire Chief Len Van Beveren, adding the cause of the fire is under investigation.

Faulty wiring may be to blame, but the blaze "didn't look like anything suspicious," he said.

The fire chief said crews battled the blaze until nearly noon. The structure began to collapse about 6:30 a.m.

A mom and her two children, living in a home just behind the hotel, were evacuated for a few hours as smoke drifted into their yard.

"There were embers flying by our house," said the mom, who asked not to be named.

She said the hotel is one of the community's few businesses, which her children often visited for snacks.

"I've lived here all my life, so this is upsetting," she said. "I hope (the owner) rebuilds."
