Duncan hotel closes down to work on fire code violations

DUNCAN, Okla._A Duncan hotel has volunteered to temporarily shut down for business after repeatedly failing its fire code inspections.

Friday, the Chisholm Suites hotel on highway 81 elected to close its doors for the next two weeks after it failed to meet fire code regulations for the third time in the past six months. Duncan Fire Chief Dayton Burnside first noted the hotel's major deficiencies as far back as March and again in April. Last week, he said issues with the hotel's fire monitoring and fire suppression systems, duct work, hot water tanks and emergency lights had not been resolved.

Burnside said the new owners had recently taken over the business and were unaware of its issues and made the right decision to close for the next two weeks. In that time, the hotel's fire systems will undergo a complete overhaul to be brought up to code.
