at Steamboat Grand
A small fire broke out at the Steamboat Grand Resort Hotel about noon Tuesday. A small pallet with cardboard sitting on top of it caught fire in a loading dock.
The Steamboat Springs Police Department received a call at 12:19 p.m. By the time the fire department arrived, the fire was mostly out, firefighter Michael Arce said.
A sprinkler went off to squelch the fire, and maintenance workers at the Grand also used a hose and dry chemical fire extinguisher to contain the fire.
When the fire department arrived, they pulled a line off the truck to hose down the pallet and extinguish the fire. The fire department left the Grand by 12:39 p.m.
