Hotel Guests Evacuated Following Fire in Hotel Lobby; No One Hurt 

(December 27, 2010)  Firefighters are investigating the cause of an early morning fire at the Holiday Inn Frisco, 3400 Parkwood. 

Firefighters received the call at 7:13 a.m. this morning.  When firefighters arrived, they found fire in the hotel lobby on the first floor.  Investigators say the fire started in and around the fireplace, also located in the first floor lobby.

From the first floor, fire moved into the ceiling above the fireplace and heavy smoke moved to the hotel’s second and third floors. 

As a result, all hotel guests have been evacuated.  All guests have been accounted for following this morning’s evacuation.  Hotel representatives tell Frisco Fire 33 rooms were occupied.  Firefighters say the hotel’s sprinkler system activated.  Firefighters report the fire under control at 7:44 a.m.

Eleven units are on the scene, including Special Operations, seven engines and an ambulance.  No one was hurt. 

Firefighters continue to ventilate the hotel so guests can return to their rooms.
