Hotel fire, 5th December, soi buckhou

Recommended Posts

Gf's room mate sent her message this morning.... Holiday Inn Express on soi buckhou caught fire last night. It's not been open long. Friend was woken by the hotel fire alarms at about 4am... but fortunately did not message us until 8am

There are pics of the blaze on PA. 

A wander around the back of the hotel, away from the obviously damaged rooms,  showed that maids were in the undamaged rooms changing bedding,, so presumably some of the hotel is still operating "as normal".

There were taken about 9.45am, and have been posted elsewhere on the forum.

That explains all the sirens I heard in the wee hours of the morning. And this is about 1.5km from the Holiday Inn.

Also looks like the cladding on the side of the building is what went up in flames. If true, when will builders and building inspectors learn the dangers of non-fire resistant building materials.

Funny.... I'm just around the corner and heard nothing!

Agree about the cladding needing improvement

Luckily it had a fire alarm system that clearly worked.

It saved a lot of lives.

Just as well they did'nt adopt the London FB's policy of "staying put" in your rooms but evacuated asap.

Info. like this is always a good "wake up call" reminder. How devastating and deadly fires can be.

We tend to forget or get lax with thoughts regarding fire safety and prevention. But they are god awful. There is no smell worse than a fire scene.. Hiorrible

Probably if a small backpack with all my valuables, I would do it also.
