RESORT SECURITY WHO ARE MOSTLY HOUSTON FIREFIGHTERS WORKING AN EXTRA JOB QUICKLY EVACUATED MOST OF THE 15 FLOORS. PEOPLE NOT JUST STAYING AT THE RESORT BUT ALSO MANY PEOPLE ATTENDING CHRISTMAS PARTIES WERE EVACUATED DOWN THE STAIR WELLS.

MANY PEOPLE WERE SEEN STANDING OUTSIDE IN ROBES AND BAREFOOT. ONE YOUNG MOTHER CUDDLING HER TODDLERS TO KEEP THEM WARM WAS HERSELF BAREFOOT. A CONTRACTOR WHO WAS STAYING THERE FOR THE NIGHT REMOVED HIS OWN SHOES AND SOCKS AND OFFERED THEM TO HER.

EVEN THOUGH IT IS IN THE CITY LIMITS OF CONROE, MONTGOMERY AND LAKE CONROE FIRE DEPARTMENTS RESPONDED TO THE CALL. THE TWO DEPARTMENTS SPENT AT LEAST AN HOUR VENTILATING THE RESIDUE FROM THE EXTINGUISHING AGENT OFF THE FLOOR.
