The fire was contained to one room in the west wing and was extinguished quickly by the suppression system while firefighters performed rescue operations.  The fire and heat were significant enough to cause flow from both sprinkler heads in the room. 

Eleven occupants of the west wing were evacuated to the outside and then relocated to different rooms within the same facility. One occupant in the west wing was transported to the hospital for evaluation. The west wing is currently closed due to water and smoke damage. Restoration efforts are scheduled to begin today.
