Wolf Road Marriott hotel evacuated because of fire

March 7, 2006

COLONIE -- A small, smoky wall fire forced the evacuation of the Albany Marriott hotel on Wolf Road Monday morning, authorities said.

Firefighters controlled the blaze -- mostly smoldering insulation and dryer lint -- within five to 10 minutes, said Chief Jerry Paris of the Shaker Road-Loudonville Fire Department. The fire was reported at 11:05 a.m.

No one was injured in the dryer-room fire, but lint and the spray-on insulation around the 10-inch dryer vent tubes gave off enough smoke that it took about an hour to ventilate, the chief said.

A woman who answered the phone in the hotel's executive offices, but declined to give her full name, said the entire building was evacuated. People were allowed back in within an hour.

Among those sent scurrying to the parking lot of the 359-room hotel at 189 Wolf Road were members of the New York State School Boards Association, who were holding conferences to prepare for a lobbying day today.

The fire didn't appear to pose a problem, said association spokesman David Ernst, who was notified of the incident shortly after he left the hotel. But the persistent alarms did interrupt a workshop on pensions.

Paris said that though the fire was small, no fire is routine.

"It had the potential to go someplace," he said.

Teen charged with setting hotel fire

FREEHOLD — Police have charged a 14-year-old Asbury Park boy with setting a fire last month that destroyed two landmark hotels, the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office announced Friday.

The teenager, whose name was not released because of his age, has been charged with two counts of aggravated arson in the blaze that destroyed the Atlantic and the Belmont hotels. He was charged Monday but information was not released by the prosecutor's office until Friday.

The teenager will remain at the Monmouth County Youth Detention Center in Freehold. A review of the case has been set for March 27 in Family Court.

Dramatic rescue from hotel fire , 10th March 2006

FIREFIGHTERS had to smash down doors and drag a man from his bed in a dramatic early-hours rescue after fire engulfed a Waterfoot hotel.

Four people were rescued and licensee Mark Farmer and a female co-worker were taken to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation following the blaze at the Royal Hotel around 4am on Monday.

A police officer and one of the hotel guests helped Mr Farmer’s two young children to safety.

The hotel bar reopened on Tuesday but the residential rooms, which were severely damaged by smoke, remained closed.

Owners revealed that the fire had started in Mr Farmer‘s bedroom, spreading and filling the upper floors of the hotel with choking black smoke; they said he had since been asked to leave.

An investigation is taking place into why the smoke alarm system apparently did not work effectively.

Fire Service crew manager Glenn Barrett said the exact cause of the fire was under investigation, but it was not regarded as suspicious.

‘It looks as though it started because of smoking materials in or near the bed in the landlord’s room,’ he said.

‘When we arrived there was black smoke coming out of two second-floor windows. A woman and two children had already got down into the bar area but there were other people on the upper two floors.

‘We found four people in a smoke-logged corridor and walked them out through the smoke and down to the ground floor.

‘We had to use rams to break down the doors of some bedrooms and found people still asleep; we had to drag one man from his bed.’

Director of Leeds-based CTD Leisure Management, Chris Henderson, said the firm had taken over the Royal in November and had plans to refurbish it to its former glory.

Mr Henderson said: ‘Mr Farmer is not there any longer.

‘He has been told to leave. We have been told that the fire started in his bedroom and there is confusion about how many people were in the hotel at the time.

‘I am told it was eight but I cannot confirm that.’

Mr Henderson said the hotel was granted a new fire certificate on 21 January following safety work done after the group took over the premises.

He said: ‘We have plans for a major refurbishment of the hotel, which has become run down.

‘We want to target visitors to the area attracted by the Mary Towneley Way, the steam railway and Ski Rossendale.’

On Monday afternoon, Mr Farmer, who took over the hotel last July, said he was too upset to talk about the incident, but added: ‘The main thing is that no-one was hurt.’
