It is understood that a chip pan maybe to blame for a massive fire which destroyed a large section of the Shannon Oaks Hotel in Portumna. The fire broke out at about one o'clock on Wednesday the 7th of Sept and fire crews from Loughrea Galway City and also crews from Co Roscommon ( Stations Unknown ) had to deal with low water pressure in their efforts to bring the Blaze under control. There where about 40 guests in the Hotel at the time of the fire and everone was evacuated and there where no injurys.
