A wing, consisting of four rooms, was evacuated at Sunrise Manor Nursing Home Sunday evening after an overhead light caught fire in a patient’s room.
Just before 11 p.m., Hodgenville Fire Department was dispatched to the second floor of the nursing home on a suspected electrical fire. A caller said there was “fire in the ceiling” and the “lights are on fire.”
Fire Chief Wally Sparks said the staff already had put out the flames using a fire extinguisher by the time firefighters arrived.
