Ritz-Carlton has small fire

Steve LynnVail CO, Colorado

BACHELOR GULCH – A fire erupted on the roof of the Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch, about 7 p.m. Sunday, said Chief Charlie Moore of the Eagle River Fire Protection District. The hotel was evacuated as a precaution, but no one was injured, Moore said. Firefighters had the fire under control at 9:25 p.m., he said. At 9:30 p.m., firefighters were working to determine the fire’s cause, he said. The flames burned some wood near a chimney, but otherwise the building did not sustain any structural damage, he said. Moore said he thought the fire began from a flue at the top of a woodburning fireplace on the roof. Staff Writer Steve Lynn can be reached at 748-2931 or slynn@vaildaily.com.
