Just after 10 am this morning units were dispatched to a local nursing facility for a fire alarm activation. Upon the arrival of E-42 staff from the facility were evacuating residents and reporting a moderate to heavy smoke condition filling the building. Crews investigated and found clothes on fire inside a clothes dryer. The fire was quickly extinguished as crews from T-5 performed searches and assisted with ventilation. No injuries occurred and the facility remained operational.
