Dozens Evacuated After Mystic Hotel Ceiling Collapse

Some 25 guest were evacuated to other area hotels following a ceiling collapse at the Hampton Inn.


A partial interior ceiling collapse at the Mystic Hampton Inn forced some 25 hotel guests to be evacuated, according to Stonington Police Capt. Jerry Desmond.


Desmond said a 7:40 a.m. alarm sent police to the Hendel Drive and Route 27 hotel where a water leak from a burst pipe was reported. A interior ceiling collapsed affecting the Inn’s lobby, not the exterior roof, he said, adding guests were evacuated in the event another portion of ceiling in the building might succumb. Water damage was widespread throughout. Desmond said police and fire responded and that the town building official is inspecting.
