Advisory

Update Fire investigation; Location correction; 4900 blk A Street

*Correction: Location of fire was 4900 block A street, not 4700 block Business Park Blvd.

On 1/26/19 around 5:10 a.m., fire fighters were dispatched to a report of a fire in the 4900 block A Street. When crews arrived on location, they found a working fire in a partly built Courtyard by Marriott hotel. They began an aggressive fire attack on the multistory structure which rapidly became engulfed.
 
No one was injured. A fire fighter was transported to a local hospital for a minor heat related injury.   
 
The structure is considered a massive loss with an estimate of $20 million. There was damage to the structures in the surrounding area.
 
The cause and origin of the fire are under investigation.
 
Our partners with the Anchorage Police Department (APD) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) are assisting in this investigation.
 
If anyone has information, including video (smartphone and/or surveillance), please call Dispatch at 311 (option 1).
