As FireNews has also surfaced, the Hendersonville Times-News Online reports on Thursday's morning fire at the Caldwell Inn. At least seven people leaped to safety from the second-story of the historic structure at 719 Maple Street. (See bird's eye view of structure from Bing Maps.) They were transported with a variety of injuries, including hip, head, and broken legs. Firefighters from Hendersonville, Valley Hill, and Blue Ridge fire departments responded. There are quite a few strong photos posted. See the slideshow from Times-News photographers Mike Dirks and Michael Justus. Or learn more about the Hendersonville Fire Department. Check out their reserve fleet, which includes an open-cab American LaFrance engine!
