A fire at a San Pablo, Calif., nursing home spurred the evacuation of three dozen patients, according to an article on the East Bay Times website.
Firefighters were called to Vale Healthcare Center after a fire ignited inside a room on one of the facility’s four wings.
The flames were contained by a sprinkler system, but 36 patients still had to be evacuated. The evacuated patients were ultimately re-accommodated elsewhere in the facility.
No injuries were reported, but there was smoke and water damage to a handful of rooms. The cause of the fire is under investigation.See the latest posts on our homepage
