PRESS RELEASE MAY 5, 2016 - It is with heavy hearts that we confirm that despite best efforts from First Responders, our Chateau Nova Hotel in Fort McMurray was engulfed in flames late last night. At this time we are unaware of the extent of damages and are waiting for more information from authorities. As a family business based in Alberta, we are completely devastated and saddened by this news.
We are so very fortunate that all of our guests, team members and their families were safely evacuated as this is truly all that matters.
The Chateau Nova was one of the last places to be evacuated on Tuesday evening and we are proud of our team that came together to provide a safe place for our guests, local schools, emergency responders, airport passengers and employees and each other. Through their efforts they were able to provide food, water and shelter for more than 600 people in need. We are forever indebted to our Fort McMurray Nova Family.
On behalf of the Mrdjenovich family and Nova Hotels, we are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and are currently focusing on ensuring our team members are safe and taken care of. Although we have lost a building, the Chateau Nova Fort McMurray will forever remain in our hearts as a huge part of our Nova Family. The legacy will continue as we look towards the future.
Nova Hotels would especially like to thank the First Responders for their tireless efforts in Fort McMurray. These brave men and women are risking their lives to salvage what is left of our community and we are humbled and truly grateful.
We are proud members of the Fort McMurray community and our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone during these difficult times. We will continue to provide as much assistance wherever possible. Together, we are strong.
