Hotel fire latest: If you own a hotel, today’s news will be depressing. A fire is still raging at the Cribbs Causeway Premier Inn, Bristol. Parts of the building have collapsed onto the M5 and fire chiefs have not ruled out calling in more resources.
The blaze, which started yesterday, has devastated the hotel. Conditions inside what remains of the building are ‘extremely dangerous’, the fire and rescue service has said. Residents nearby are still being told to keep their doors and window shut because of lingering smoke.
The impact of a hotel fire
Nationwide Water Solutions is a fire tank expert. It supplies water storage tanks for automatic sprinkler systems. Its directors have been closely following the development of the hotel fire. It is not known at this stage what fire fighting equipment was installed in the building, but a spokesman said: “It is truly devastating to see a building on this scale be destroyed by a fire. The cost of rebuilding the hotel is likely to be very expensive. The only good thing to come out of this is that all the hotel guests have been accounted for.”
If you are concerned about fire safety in your hotel, consider storing water to fight a fire. A sprinkler tank works with an automatic sprinkler system and ensures water is available around the clock – exclusively for the purpose of containing a blaze from the earliest opportunity. The fire at the Premier Inn started on the third floor. A sprinkler tank ensures water can be delivered to any level of a building quickly. It helps overcome the issue of low water pressure.
