Lodge and Spa minimally damaged in fire


BRECKENRIDGE – Guests at the scenic Lodge and Spa in Breckenridge were evacuated early Thursday morning as a small fire broke out in a laundry room there.Red White & Blue firefighters responded to the scene, at 112 Overlook Drive, and made their way to the laundry room, where they extinguished a small fire in a laundry bag. According to the manager at the Lodge and Spa, at approximately 3 a.m., a front desk employee smelled an “unusual” smell but could not locate the source of the odor.According to Fire Investigator Lt. Jay Nelson, a smoke detector activated approximately six feet from the source of the fire. Investigation determined the cause of the fire to be spontaneous heating caused by either residual massage oils in the sheets or a chemical used in the cleaning process of the sheets that may not have been fully washed out. The laundry is sent out of the Lodge and Spa to a local laundry for cleaning.”We would like to commend the occupants as well as the staff at the Lodge and Spa for their quick response in recognizing the fire alarm and evacuating immediately,” said Fire Chief Gary Green.Damage was minimal and limited to the bag of sheets.
