21-year old woman was killed in a fire in a hotel in Amsterdam on Tuesday evening.

16 January 2008

AMSTERDAM â?? A 21-year old woman was killed in a fire in a hotel in Amsterdam on Tuesday evening. A 25-year-old man is seriously injured.

A police spokesperson says that both were tourists, but he could not say from which country.

Three hotel workers were admitted to hospital as well for smoke inhalation. The cause of the fire is still not known, according to the fire brigade.

The fire started at about 6.15 pm in a room on the third floor of the Swissôtel on the Damrak in the centre of the city. The hotel was evacuated.

The flames did not spread beyond a single room. The fire brigade had the fire under control by 7 pm. Hotel guests were allowed to return to their rooms after that.

Police are investigating the fire. The spokesperson says this is customary when there are fatalities.

Friends in Amsterdam have said to me that the fire was in the Swisshotel, the woman killed was Romanian and the guy injured is French. There is some speculation that he started the fire to cover up something! Only speculation though...
yeah i was just reading that too
Ahhh.... A mystery!
Starting a fire in a hotel room to cover up something? You have to be a bit weird to come up with a plan like that, no?
Nothing surprises me these days, the world has alot of bad people who do weird and crazy things.
the rumour mill is in full flow and says that he may have killed the girl and tried to cover it up...I suspect stranger scenarios have been found.

Ah, as obscure as it is, that would explain. I thought perhaps they'd been smoking in the room, which perhaps was prohibited, and they thought they could cover the smoke up by more smoke, ie. a fire.

Perhaps that theory says more about me though, ha ha.
That sounds like the plot of a piss poor episode of The Bill.

Perhaps I should become a scriptwriter for The Bill then, whatever it may be.

I never smoke in hotel rooms if it's prohibited. Though I did risk my life by hanging out of a little window whilst standing on a chair, having a cig in a hotel in Bruges. You have a good weekend too, Chris!
It's a police themed soap opera that's on ITV in the UK. It tends to have slightly daft plot lines.

That sounds fun, actually. Is it anything like Midsomer Murders or Morse?

Hahah, when I was in San Francisco I did the same thing, but I gave up and smoked my herb in the bathroom. Usually a vent will do the trick.
