There was a fire alarm at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Port Harcourt GRA, Phase 2, on Tuesday, as flame immersed a few rooms on the primary floor.
It was accumulated that the flame, which began in one of the rooms, constrained tenants of different rooms to surge out of the premises, while different visitors, who left their vehicles on the premises, hastily drove them out.
Sources said the inferno was extinguished by laborers in the hotel, who struggled for around 10 minutes before the arrival of agents of the Rivers State Fire Service.
There was no loss of life, however, property worth millions of naira was obliterated by the wildfire.
According to the Human Resources Consultant to the hotel, Paul Odousoro, the reason for the flame was as yet obscure, adding that the tenant of the room where it began was not around when the inferno started.
According to Paul, “One of the hotel’s employee in the hall on the first floor saw huge smoke emanating from a specific room that was earlier booked by a client. Unfortunately, the client was not around when the fire began.
“The servant, who originally saw it, raised the alert and quickly the flame caution was enacted and all visitors were taken to the summon point. When everybody was securely at the gathering point, extinguishing the flame started.”
