Fire forces evacuation of nursing home
A small, but smoky, fire forced the evacuation of a Heartland nursing home overnight.
Fire crews were dispatched to the Golden Age Care Center in Centerville, Iowa a little after 3:00 a.m. Tuesday.
Several dozen residents were evacuated as firefighters looked for the blaze. Authorities say a small fire was found above the ceiling in the administrative offices and was quickly extinguished.
No injuries have been reported.
Centerville Fire Chief Mike Bogle says an electrical problem is suspected as the fire cause.
