The Lankalis Hotel on High Street, Coaldale, burned to the ground early this morning and the adjoining residence of Alex Shanosky was badly gutted by the blaze. Firemen from Coaldale and Lansford responded to the fire, which gained fast headway and was difficult to combat because of a prevailing strong wind. Owned by John Lankalis, 39, the hotel building, a three-story frame structure, was completely destroyed by the blaze, which had its inception at about 6 a.m. The cause of the fire has not been determined.
