The Charlotte Fire Department has deemed a hotel unsafe after the discovery of significant issues with multiple life-saving systems at the property.
The fire department responded to a fire alarm at the Days Inn on Woodlawn Road on Monday, May 18.
Officials say the fire alarm was caused by damage to a fire alarm pull station. This damage caused the system to activate, causing a resident calling 911 to report a fire alarm.
Fire officials arrived on scene and discovered significant issues with the fire alarm system as well as other life safety systems which rendered the building unsafe for occupancy.
Both the owner of the hotel and all occupants were immediately notified that the building was unsafe and needed to be evacuated.
