  • Description

    GUESTS FLED FOR THEIR LIVES TONIGHT (MONDAY) AS A SERIES OF EXPLOSIONS RIPPED THROUGH A HOTEL IN THE HEART OF BRUSSELS, MIRACULOUSLY NOBODY WAS HURT BUT THE HOTEL WAS EXTENSIVELY DAMAGED.

    ALL AVAILABLE FIRE APPLIANCES WERE RUSHED TO THE HOTEL AMIGO, ONE OF THE CITY'S FOREMOST HOTELS, WHEN THE ALARM WAS RAISED. THE HOTEL WAS RECENTLY RENOVATED AND A SIXTH FLOOR WAS BEING ADDED.

    THE FIRE, PROCEEDED BY EXPLOSIONS, CAME WHEN MOST GUESTS WERE PREPARING FOR BED. THEY RAN INTO THE STREETS CLUTCHING ALL THE BELONGINGS THEY COULD LAY THEIR HANDS ON. FIREMEN USED EXTENSION LADDERS TO REACH THE HEART OF THE BLAZE BUT IT TOOK MORE THAN AN HOUR TO BRING THE INFERNO UNDER CONTROL
    AN IMMEDIATE INVESTIGATION INTO THE CAUSE OF THE BLAZE WAS ORDERED BUT SO FAR WITHOUT RESULT.
