Kissimmee Hotel Fire
June 27, 2011 by USA Post
Eight people, including two firefighters, were hospitalized for injuries caused by the fire in the cottage rental, 7514 W. Irlo Bronson Highway, a complex of 430 rooms.
Firefighters sustained minor muscle sprains and returned home to recover. Six people were taken to Celebration Hospital.
Details on their injuries were not immediately available.
More than 100 firefighters responded to Osceola and Orange flames, which broke out in a Sunday night.
Osceola County Deputy Fire Chief Dan McAvoy said the fire spread from a single room, got into the attic and ran around the building, destroying nearly everything.
I do not know if complex was built with firewalls designed to contain fires.
He thinks that the complex was built for the World’s Fair in Knoxville and then disassembled and trucked here in the 1980s as a tourist motel.
In recent years it became the residence of long duration with some guests who stay from one week to one month or more.
The U.S. fire has gone Highway 192 and Reedy Creek Boulevard, traffic jams in several directions.
A dark cloud of smoke from burning wood structure could be seen from miles away. It is unclear whether the irrigation system is working, Whisler said.
The fire spread to the Black Angus Steakhouse in the hotel, said McAvoy.
The hotel is near Old Lake Wilson Road and about 1 mile from Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Dozens of hotels aimed at tourists in the area of?? Osceola County. McAvoy believes the fire investigation will begin on Tuesday.
