My family has stayed at the Vagabond Inn at Bishop so I was shocked and surprised to learn that during their recent fire neither the fire alarm or sprinklers were activated. My friends visiting from Brussels barely made it out alive during their "stay" at Vagabond Inn Bishop. At approx 8:30am the power went out. They checked the light switch, looked out the window and saw smoke and flames, in fact the room next door was on fire. There were no alarms, no sprinklers, no staff alerting them to get out in fact the staff just looked at them from below. They have two children who had to run through a wall of smoke to escape. They lost half of their luggage. As soon as they departed the hotel their room was engulfed in flames and the roof collapsed. They went to the hospital and now have a $2,000 hospital bill. They are in shock. It's a travesty that Vagabond did not meet the standard fire codes and how this emergency was handled.
