Demolition Begins For Historic Hot Springs Hotel

Demolition of the Majestic hotel started early Saturday morning (March 1).

The historic hotel in Hot Springs was partially destroyed by a fire that started Thursday afternoon.

Firefighters spent hours containing the fire to the fifth and fourth floors and say part of the hotel’s back wall collapsed.

The hotel was shut down back in 2006, so police say there shouldn’t have been anyone inside.

Still no word on what caused the blaze.

The hotel has been around since 1902.
