Hotel Fires - Grand Forks Hotel and Winnipeg Hotel - March 7 2012
Grand Forks Fire Rescue was called out early on Wednesday morning to a structure fire spotted at the rear of the Winnipeg Hotel.
While the first of four trucks began rolling to the call, one of the members arriving for the second truck noted that he'd seen significant smoke at the Grand Forks Hotel as well.
Responding officers split the two scenes, and diverted two of the responding trucks to the second location and called out a fifth Grand Forks truck as well as requesting a truck from Christina Lake to provide assistance.
Fortunately, the fire at the Winnipeg Hotel was brought under control. The Grand Forks Hotel, though just blocks away from the downtown fire hall, was fully involved as the first trucks arrived on scene.
