Blaze Rips Through Historic Veranda House Hotel on Nantucket

Updated on

A fire ripped through the Veranda House hotel, one of the most recognizable structures on Nantucket, and video from the scene shows the building charred and its roof destroyed.

All guests and employees were safely evacuated and have been accounted for, the hotel said in a statement posted on Facebook. It did not say how many people had been inside the three-story building when the blaze erupted early on Saturday, but it described the fire as “major.”
