Firefighters Help to Rescue Residents in Assisted Living Facility Blaze

Residents and staff members needed to be rescued and relocated after a fire destroyed an assisted living facility. Everyone was rescued from the burning building without sustaining injuries and was assisted by various people that were in close proximity to the facility.

There were over 200 firefighters on the scene to help battle the blaze that caused the facility to be completely destroyed. The day after the fire, some residents were able to retrieve some belongings and all were provided with at least two weeks worth of medications.

Those that resided at the assisted living facility that had family members and friends were relocated there. Others were moved to a local nursing and rehabilitation center and or hospital.
