    Re: Christmas Tree Fire @ Grand California Hotel

    THEY FINALLY TALKED ABOUT IT AND SHOWED A PICTURE OF FIREMEN HOSING DOWN THE ARTIFICIAL TREE IN THE LOBBY.

    THEY SAID THAT EARLY THIS MORNING THE ALARMS WENT OFF AND THE HOTEL EVACUATED 2300 GUEST AND WHEN THE FIREMEN ARRIVED THE HOTELS SPRINKLERS HAD EXTINGUISHED THE FIRE ALREADY. THERE WAS 2 MINOR INJURIES. 1 COMPLAINED OF BACK STRAIN AND ANOTHER OF STRESS RELATED INJURIES. THEY DON'T THINK THEY WILL GET THEM BACK IN TO THE HOTEL UNTIL 7AM AND GUEST ARE WAITING IN 3 LOCATION. CAUSE IS UNKNOWN BUT THEY SAID THAT THE 25' ARTIFICIAL TREE HAD ALLOT OF LIGHTS ON IT.

    I DON'T KNOW IF EVEN THE PERKS THEY GET WOULD BE WORTH BEING WOKE UP AND HAVING TO WAIT HOURS TO GO BACK TO BED. IT WOULD BE HARD TO ENJOY THE PARKS WHEN TIRED AND THE SMOKE SMELL IN THE AIR WOULDN'T BE GREAT ON THE SINUS.

    Back strain and stress related injury? Please.

    Anything goes wrong at disney and all of a sudden stress is an injury. Let the lawsuits fly.

    I DO, however, feel sorry for the guests, but no one was hurt and that is the best thing.

    If anything, it would make my vacation that much more memorable.

    Me Too Glad Everyone It Alright And One Trip You Wouldn't Forget.
    3 Am And They Got Everyone Out In 4 Minutes. That's Pretty Good For That Many Sleeping People.

    grateful that nobody was seriously injured and that the alarm system did its job.

    Not every day you hear about an ARTIFICIAL tree catching fire....

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    I hear they had to evacuate 2200 guests to other areas of the resort. I wonder how many people are sleeping in the Teacups this morning.

    Disneyland Grand Californian Hotel tree fire

    Disneyland Grand Californian Hotel
    6:14 a.m. December 28, 2005
    ANAHEIM A 35-foot Christmas tree caught fire early Wednesday in the lobby of the Disneyland Grand Californian Hotel, forcing the evacuation of more than 2,000 guests, officials said.
    No one was injured except for a guest who complained of a strained back and another with symptoms of stress.
    The sprinkler system kept the 3 a.m. blaze in the artificial tree in check, and firefighters were able to quickly put it out, said Maria Sabol, a spokeswoman for the Anaheim Fire Department.
    The cause of the fire was under investigation, she said.
    The 745-room

    The 745-room hotel in the center of the Disneyland Resort was at full capacity with about 2,300 guests, said Rob Doughty, the resort's vice president of communications. They were evacuated to other locations in and around the park, and hotel officials hoped to get them back into their rooms within a few hours, he said.
    Lee Crice, a guest from Phoenix, told KTLA-TV he was awakened by an alarm and saw the top six feet of the tree were ablaze as he fled through the lobby.
    The guest with a strained back and the one with stress symptoms were treated at the scene, Doughty said.

    What a bummer! I hope the lobby isn't messed up too terribly.

    Watch and see how many guests suddenly suffer other "symptoms"...smoke inhalation, whiplash, etc, etc. The lawsuits .....whoooo boy. I don't remember reading about other Disney hotel fires. This couldn't be the first one, could it?
