CENTERVILLE, Iowa (AP) - A small but smoky fire forced evacuation of a nursing home in the south-central Iowa city of Centerville.
The Daily Iowegian reports that firetrucks were sent to the Golden Age Care Center a little after 3:15 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.
