EARLIER: Hotel guests have all escaped from a blaze at a spa and accommodation rooms in Daylesford overnight.
Nine trucks from as far away from Ballarat battled the blaze at Endota Spa in Vincent Street which broke out about 10.45pm.
One witnesses on her Twitter feed said all guests staying at the hotel were accounted for and taken to a nearby restaurant where she was offered drinks or food.
“When all else fails, walk across the road (in my dressing gown) and order a glass of red with all the other evacuees,” she tweeted.
“All the people are fine, so it’s just a bit of a cold nuisance more than anything else.”
The witness said she believed the fire started in the spa area.
A Ballarat City Fire spokesman said the HAZMAT unit was called to the blaze with investigations continuing into what caused it.
