Regency Inn Fire Aftermath

I can't say that Wednesday was all boring with forums and workshops. I did have an interesting assignment to cover the aftermath of a early morning fire at the Regency Inn along the Esplanade. The fire broke out a little after midnight and destroyed one room and damage nearby rooms as well. Because the newspaper has been short staffed over the years due to economic issues, we don't always hear about fires late and early into the morning. I would keep a scanner to the ear, but I don't think that would be very nice to do to my wife. Besides, I do need the sleep. The best we can do is head out the next day and cover the remains of the scene.
