Six staff members were hospitalized Tuesday after a fire broke out at an Oklahoma City nursing home.
The fire began about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday in the office area at South Park Health Care Center, 5725 S Ross Ave., said Maj. Tammy McKinney, a spokeswoman for the Oklahoma City Fire Department.
Staff members helped residents get out of the building, and the sprinkler system put out the fire, McKinney said.
Six nursing home staff members were taken to local hospitals with smoke-related illnesses, said Emergency Medical Services Authority spokeswoman Lara O'Leary. All six staff members were in good condition.
Paramedics treated six other people at the scene, O'Leary said.
Details about the damage to the building weren't immediately available.
