Monroe firefighters probe cause of nursing home blaze that sent two patients to hospital

·1 min read

Two patients were taken to a hospital for evaluation after a fire this morning at the Hawthorne Glen Nursing Home in Monroe.

The Monroe Fire Department said in a news release that units were dispatched to the nursing home at 5414 Hankins Road about 4:50 a.m. on reports of a fire alarm activation and black smoke in a room.

Firefighters arrived to find moderate smoke in the south wing of the nursing home and patient evacuations underway by Hawthorne Glen staff, the department said.

The fire was found in a storage room in the south wing near the nursing station.

Fire crews extinguished the blaze using pre-connected hose lines and ventilated the facility.

The fire department said all patients were removed from the south wing and medical personnel evaluated each patient.

The Monroe police and the Liberty Township, Middletown and Fairfield Township fire departments assisted in the emergency.

Fire investigators remain on scene

The Monroe Fire Department was at the scene this morning investigating the cause of the fire.
