Fire Damages Medical Center
Fire alarm system helped save three-story building.
A fire that broke out at the Moreland Medical Center early Tuesday morning created significant damage to the suite that houses the ear, nose and throat doctors, according to Battalion Chief Joe Vitale.
“They are working on getting a hold of their patients and getting them out their pilot offices,” Vitale said. “They are out of business.”
From a news release:
Fire crews made an aggressive interior attack and were able to knock down the majority of fire, preventing it from spreading beyond the involved suite. Suite 102 sustained major fire and smoke damage with moderate water damage. The remainder of the single story structure sustained significant smoke damage with minor water damage. The three-story building was saved from any smoke or fire damage due properly working fire doors and alarm system.
One portion of the building is completely closed to patients but office personnel is being allowed to grab computers and files from the building.
Fire officials are still investigating the fire and they do not yet have a damage estimate.
