General manager Russell Haubrich (HOW'-brick) of the Vance Creek Hotel says a dryer caught fire in a room next to a restaurant.
He suspects grease residue from rags ignited the blaze, which was reported at about 4:30 a.m.
Haubrich says water from the sprinkler system ran for about half an hour, damaging the ceiling in a bar at the hotel.
He says the restaurant was expected to reopen later Thursday, but the bar may be closed for up to two days. (CKIZ)
