Fire empties west Wichita hotel of guests, workers
Wichita fire investigators are trying to determine the cause of a fire that forced the evacuation of guests and workers Friday at the Wichita Airport Hotel at 5500 W. Kellogg.

Fire Capt. Jim Heath said the fire broke out in a first-floor laundry room about 6:30 p.m. and firefighters quickly extinguished it.

Two people were taken to a Wichita hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation, he said, but were not seriously injured.

Art imitated life Guests Flee Volcano Fire
Updated: 15:50, Saturday March 31, 2007
An imitation volcano at a Minnesota hotel and water park forced swimmers to flee
after it started erupting like a real one. The 20 foot tall plastic volcano at the complex's swimming pool started belching black smoke and shooting flames. Guests at the Edgewater Hotel and Waterpark in Duluth were forced to flee to the car park in their bare feet and swimsuits. An imitation volcano at the center of a swimming pool at a hotel and waterpark here developed delusions of grandeur Thursday, forcing guests to flee into the parking lot in their bare feet and swimsuits.

The 20-foot-tall plastic volcano started to belch black smoke and shoot out flames about 6:40 p.m. Thursday at the Edgewater Hotel and Waterpark. The hotel manager said a malfunctioning internal speaker ignited the fire.

Firefighters and an automatic sprinkler head mounted above the volcano quickly brought the fire under control, but not before part of the volcano melted.

The displaced swimmers were given blankets and directed to the nearby Perkins and Black Woods restaurants. Once guests were allowed back into their rooms, the staff treated them to in-room ice cream Thursday night.

The Edgewater reopened in January 2006 after a 14-month, $20 million remodeling project.


Fire Strikes Wintergreen Resort
April 1, 2007

Virginia - About 15 people were evacuated from the Mountain Inn hotel at Wintergreen Resort on Saturday afternoon when a fire broke out at a neighboring cafeteria, causing damage estimated in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, according to Wintergreen Fire Chief Curtis Sheets.
No one was injured in the fire, and the cause still is unknown, he said.

The fire originated at about 3:25 p.m. near air conditioning and heating equipment in Pryors Porch cafeteria at the resort, Sheets said. The cafeteria is connected to the Mountain Inn, so about 15 people who were in the hotel at the time were evacuated from their rooms.

Firefighters from about eight different fire departments in the area teamed up to isolate the flames and extinguish the blaze in about an hour, he said.

When they were through, about an inch of water remained in the cafeteria as a reminder of the battle. Triangular windows above the building's entrance were shattered. And areas where walls met the roof were charred black, inside and out. A large amount of damage was caused to the roof by smoke, Sheets said.

"It's a lot of damage," he said, "but it's not something that can't be repaired."

Bob Ashton, president of the resort, stood outside of the charred building as firefighters prepared to leave. He plans to assess the damage Monday, he said, and make plans from there.

The building is used as a cafeteria during ski season, Sheets said, and as meeting space during the rest of the year. No one was inside when the fire started, he said.

"The timing was as fortunate as a fire can be because we just closed the ski slopes last weekend," he said. "It could have been worse."

The man was pronounced dead at 4:50 p.m., a spokesman for the Cook County medical examiner's office said.
