DAYTON, Ohio, Oct. 9, 2019
— Midmark Corp., a leading provider of medical, dental and veterinary equipment, technology and services, announced that a fire occurred last evening at The Inn at Versailles, a Midmark facility that serves local patrons and Midmark business partners. All guests were evacuated, and no injuries were incurred.
Due to the historic nature of the building, smoke had spread into empty cavities in the walls, forcing firefighters to open many walls and ceilings of the second floor to battle the flames. Although the smoke appeared to be dissipated around midnight, crews remained on site all through the night as a precaution in case of reignition. The source of the fire is under investigation.
Midmark President and CEO John Baumann stated, “While it is very sad to see the damage to The Inn, long after we have restored what was lost, we will remember the individual firefighters, EMS, teammates and community at large that supported us last night. It was remarkable to see that there are communities of people like Versailles and Darke County who appreciate and understand the value of supporting each other. I would also like to recognize our teammates who responded so well and secured the safety of our guests.”
The Inn at Versailles hotel and restaurant will be closed for the indefinite future. Upon assessment of the damage, we will provide any updates with the timeline for reopening.
