The View Point Inn in Oregon, where the prom scenes was filmed for Twilight, suffered a fire yesterday. According to local KPTV:
A three-alarm fire that damaged a historic Columbia River Gorge hotel started when sparks from the chimney landed on the cedar roof, according to fire investigators.
The View Point Inn, featured prominently in the movie “Twilight,” caught fire early Sunday afternoon.
Two of the movie’s fans, who came to see the hotel, noticed the fire and alerted staff members, who tried unsuccessfully to put the flames out with a garden hose.
The hotel, built in 1924, was heavily damaged. Flames burned through the hotel’s roof and gutted the top floor.
The hotel’s owners filed for bankruptcy last month.
