Above: Drone video from Nordeste Alpine Start YouTube channel. Photos and videos shared by people in the area showed smoke and flames rising from rooms on the second and third floors. North Conway Police confirmed the closure of Route 16. The North Conway Fire Chief said there were three injured, one person at the resort and two firefighters. None of the injuries are considered serious. Hotel staff arranged for buses to take residents to a separate location while teams worked and began assessing the damage. The boss also shared with WMTW News 8 that 75 rooms were destroyed, with about a third of the resort considered a total loss. The central section housing the lobby area has water damage, but the left third of the building is intact. The resort hotel is also home to an indoor Kahuna Laguna water park, which officials say has also not been damaged. Lauren Knudsen, a spokeswoman for the company representing the resort’s marketing efforts, issued a statement in response to the fire. “This afternoon, a fire broke out at Red Jacket Mountain View Resort. At this time, the North Conway Fire Department and area partners are working to extinguish the flames. Guest safety remains our primary focus as we continue to work in close collaboration with emergency responders,” Knudsen said. This story will be updated.
