Fire Capt. Len Stewart said that while firefighters were dispatched to the location, a small fire that was reported in a utility room on the fourth floor of the hospital had been extinguished by the sprinkler system.

In addition, an alarm for a fire also went off on the fifth floor of the hospital, Stewart added, but again the sprinkler system was activated and contained whatever caused the alarm to go off.
