The El Dorado Fire Department responded to the Lake Point Nursing Home for a fire early this evening.
Upon arrival crews found an active fire above the suspended ceiling in a hallway. Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire, but not before a big share of the facility was charged with smoke.
Multiple fans were strategically placed to clear the smoke.
One of the residents complained of difficulty breathing. That patient was checked by Butler EMS paramedics, but declined transport.
Nursing home personnel will conduct fire watch for the rest of the evening. Wiring repair specialists will make the necessary repairs tomorrow.
A great job by firefighters prevented the fire from extending beyond the seat of the fire.
