GUESTS at a Killarney town centre hotel were evacuated last night, merely as a precautionary measure, when a minor fire incident occurred in the kitchen.

Two units of Killarney Fire Service attended the Malton Hotel after a call-out was received close to 10.00pm that a kitchen appliance had caught fire.

The firefighters were quickly at the scene by which time hotel staff already had the matter under control.

Guests were evacuated, in a very orderly and calm manner, in accordance with the hotel’s safety policy.

It is understood that business resumed as normal within an hour and the kitchen was fully operational. it’s the talk of the town
