The hotel's manager was shocked when he got the call.
Axar.az reports citing CBC.
Quebec City’s Village Vacances Valcartier winter park ice hotel had quite the scare on Tuesday morning when a small fire broke out in one of the 45 guest rooms.
"When I received the phone call they had to repeat twice that there was a fire in the ice hotel," manager Jacques Desbois told.
Luckily for those inside, the fire remained contained to the one guest room and was extinguished. However, while the physical flames only damaged that room, smoke from the fire did enter the rest of the hotel, affecting guest along the way. Several guests were reportedly treated at a nearby hospital for smoke inhalation.
Even after the flames went out and the smoke cleared, how the fire started remained quite a mystery. The fire was reported to have started when a candle fell on a guest’s sleeping bag.
