Halloween is super exciting for kids, but can also be very dangerous. On average, twice as many child pedestrians are killed while walking on Halloween compared to any other day of the year. Stay safe by staying VISIBLE: bring flashlights, glow sticks and reflective goodie bags, and add reflective tape to costumes. #IPFFSafetyTips #IPFF

West Des Moines Firefighters were called to the Valley West Inn extended stay hotel located at 3535 Westown Parkway at 11:16 p.m. Monday night for an automatic fire alarm activation. As crews were responding, Westcom dispatch received a telephone call from someone on site who said the building was on fire. The incident was quickly upgraded to a working fire which dispatched several more fire apparatus to the scene. The first arriving crews saw heavy smoke and fire coming from the building and immediately requested a second alarm.
Numerous occupants were jumping from windows of the building with several more trapped inside or hanging out of windows signaling for help. Firefighters began making numerous rescues with ladders on the outside of the building and went inside the building to look for victims. Some occupants handed children and infants out of windows to firefighters before ladders were in place. Hallways were filled with thick black smoke and visibility was near zero inside most of the building.
The hotel is three stories tall and has a total of 142 rooms. At the time of the fire, 127 of the rooms were occupied, and many of the guests were sleeping when the fire began. As occupants made it outside, some began grabbing firefighters telling them where people were trapped inside. Initial estimates are that firefighters successfully rescued two dozen occupants from the building, including several children.
EMS personnel transported two occupants to the hospital for minor injuries and treated approximately six more on scene. There were no fatalities as a result of this fire.
A total of three alarms were called bringing in fire and EMS crews from Clive (Iowa) Fire Department, Waukee Fire Department, Urbandale Fire Department, Johnston-Grimes Metropolitan Fire Department, and Windsor Heights (Iowa) Fire Department. Crews worked through the overnight and morning extinguishing hot spots and were on scene until Monday afternoon helping to assist those affected by the fire. Fire and Police Investigators are currently investigating the cause of the fire, and an initial damage estimate is still being determined.
The West Des Moines Fire Department would like to thank West Des Moines Emergency Medical Services, Westcom Emergency Communications, West Des Moines Police Department, West Des Moines Public Services, all of the fire departments that responded for mutual aid, Polk County Emergency Management Agency, Iowa and American Red Cross - Serving Iowa for their help with this major incident.
