'Unstoppable' Hotel Renovations

The effects of the filming of the movie "Unstoppable" in the region are already being felt.

To accommodate some crew members, the movie's production company is footing part of the bill for renovations at the DeSoto Holiday House on South Avenue.

Tarport Properties is planning to refurbish the entire facility.

As for the movie, the pre-production crew has been in Bradford for several weeks spending money at a number of businesses. Star Denzel Washington and Director Tony Scott have also been staying in the area.

The action movie is being filmed in Cameron County, which is also getting a much-need economic boost.

This Dumpster behind the hotel caught on fire at about 4 o'clock this moring. It's holding old carpeting from the hotel, as well as other construction materials. Bradford Township firefighters were on the scene for about 2 hours.
