‘Twilight’ Hotel Damaged in Fire
According to a local Fox affiliate, a three-alarm fire on Sunday severely damaged Oregon’s historic View Point Inn, better known to Twihards as the location of the famous ‘Twilight’ prom scene.
Reports say the fire was initially spotted by two ‘Twilight’ movie fans, who were there to catch a piece of movie history. Staff members then tried to put out the flames – which quickly “burned through the hotel’s roof and gutted the top floor” – with a gardening hose, but were unsuccessful in their attempt.
The fire has since been ruled accidental.
Built in 1924, the View Point Inn filed for bankruptcy last month. A wedding that was to take place at the Inn on Sunday was moved to a nearby location.
