Crews put out Christmas blaze at Ithaca Holiday Inn

Crews put out Christmas blaze at Ithaca Holiday Inn

Christmas didn’t deter Ithaca firefighters from putting out a blaze at the Holiday Inn in downtown Ithaca.

Fire crews arrived at the hotel just before 2 p.m. Wednesday and made their way down to the smoke-filled basement.

Ithaca Fire Lt. Tom Basher says the fire was caused by a large dryer malfunctioning in the hotel laundry room.

He says no one was injured and there was no damage to the building.
