One person is dead and several others are unable to return to their hotel rooms after a fire ripped through a La Quinta Inn Hotel at 2510 W Greenway Road shortly after 11 p.m. on Wednesday, November 6th. Upon arrival, crews found heavy smoke and flames coming from a room on the bottom floor, a spokesman with the Phoenix Fire Department said. (The structure was originally reported by media sources as being an apartment complex, which is incorrect.)
As they began to attack the blaze, they searched for victims still trapped inside and found one person dead. A second person was rushed to a nearby hospital in critical condition on an unrelated medical emergency.
Multiple units were damaged leaving many others displaced. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
The fire department’s Community Assistance Program was working with the Red Cross and other groups to help displaced guests, the agency mentioned.
The highly skilled legal team at BrewerWood law firm boasts over 50 years of collective experience in representing victims of fires and explosions that occur in homes, apartments, mobile homes, structures, and vehicles. Frequently, determining the cause of a fire/explosion remains uncertain even after official investigations. In many instances, investigators are quick to attribute the fire/explosion to human error when, in reality, some other underlying issue led to the blaze. Time and time again, the attorneys at BrewerWood have revealed that the true cause of a fire/explosion was a faulty appliance, leaking gas valve or piping, negligence of service/utility providers (e.g. gas company or electric company), defective electrical system, or substandard home construction, which can mean that a product manufacturer, gas/electrical company, or other entity can be held responsible. BrewerWood conducts comprehensive investigations into each fire/explosion incident, collaborating with an elite team of experts including fire investigators, utility inspectors, and engineers. It is crucial to consult an attorney promptly after a house fire or explosion before vital evidence is lost or recollections fade.
